The usual suspects? Exercise more? Get in shape? Take up a
new hobby? Get out of the house more? Join a club? Make some friends?
Well the good news is you can do all of the above by simply
taking up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
Get rid of that Christmas weight
It’s not uncommon to put on a few pounds over Christmas, we’ve
all been guilty of it. The real trouble comes when you try to lose it again.
And it’s not just the delicious turkey and stuffing that’s
to blame – it’s the big boxes of Roses going for 3 quid at Tescos.
A wee chocolate here and there doesn’t hurt… until you add up just how many you’ve had over the past few weeks.
But don’t worry, you can lose any weight you’ve put on if
you work at it. And the wonderful thing about taking up BJJ is, you don’t even
realise you’re working at it.
When you’re on the mats, learning new techniques and rolling
with your friends, losing weight just sort of happens. You’ll notice it even
after the first week as your body starts to burn off those excess calories.
Then before you know it, you’ll…
Get in the best shape of your life
Just like losing weight goes almost unnoticed, so does
They are both bonus “side-effects” of training BJJ,
happening in the background while you work on your moves.
And when we say you’ll get fitter, we mean it.
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu will have you in the best shape of your
life. The constant struggling against an opponent works every muscle in your
body, toning, shaping and strengthening you in ways nothing else does.
You’ll suddenly realise one day that you can bound up a
flight of stairs without being out of breath, or maybe catch yourself in the
mirror and wonder where that six-pack came from.
Meet new people and make new friends
For many, New Years is a time to look back on the year and
see what went right and what went wrong.
It can be a time to make changes to your life, a time of
self-assessment and honesty.
For many people, that means having the courage to be more adventurous,
to take up a new hobby or activity, sometimes as a way of meeting new people.
Ask anyone who does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and they’ll tell you their club is like their family. Rolling with people brings with it a respect and bond that is hard to describe to those who haven’t experienced it before.
Many great, long-lasting friendships have developed through
BJJ, along with plenty of romantic relationships.
And they were all possible because someone had the courage
to try something new.
What will your resolutions be this time next year?

Now imagine it’s a year later and you did join our

It’s a no-brainer really, isn’t it?
