WRESTLING FITNESS & FUN
Lifting weights and running on the treadmill are great ways to improve your physical fitness, but your lifting sessions are only targeting one or two muscle groups at a time.
Wrestling works your whole body and incorporates every muscle group.
Because your body is moving, pushing, and pulling in so many directions, you’ll discover muscles you didn’t even know you had.
Wrestling also gets your heart rate up. Because you are focused on the technique at hand, you will probably find you’re able to push yourself further due to being distracted from fatigue.
As they say, the mind gives out before the body, so keeping your mind involved is a great way to push past your cardio limits.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is based on the concept that a smaller, weaker defender can prevail against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution, taking the fight to the ground and using a number of holds and submissions to defeat them.
Originating from the Japanese martial arts Kodokan Judo and Jujutsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a combat sport that focuses on ground fighting.
During the early 1900s, the legendary Brazilian Gracie family transformed this martial art and it was transformed into what we know as BJJ today. Over the last 30 years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gained exposure and popularity with the rise of MMA..
It is often referred to as a “game of human chess” implementing hundreds of concepts and techniques that you learn through years of training.
