Why Train Jiu Jitsu?
There are many martial arts, Karate, Kung fu, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Kenpo, and Nin Jitsu are all respectable and good arts. But, there is no art more efficient and effective than Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu uses leverage and technique. It is the only art where a smaller person can defeat a much larger opponent with ease and not rely on athleticism and speed. Royce Gracie was much smaller and less athletic than all of the opponents he faced in UFC 1, 2, 4, and 5. He smashed his way through those tournaments gently submitting all of his opponents. He fought fighters of every discipline and won. What I am saying is not an opinion. It is a proven fact based on the first 5 UFC’s where it was not superior athlete vs superior athlete…but style vs style. This style was modified and designed by Helio Gracie who was 5’7” and 145 lbs. He was extremely small but he was beating guys of every size using leverage and technique. No one could handle him.
If you are a woman, this is the only art where you can literally destroy a man bigger and stronger than you using proper technique. The typical rape position is Jiu Jitsu’s “guard.” When you are properly skilled in the guard, you will have dozens and dozens of ways of making your opponent tap out and submit to you no matter who you are.
