The past few years I have trained at a few clubs, and as well done drop-ins at many gyms around the world.

I have trained at several gyms over the course of a few years. Though i find the vancouver jiu jitsu community very welcoming and inclusive, I never felt like I was home. This last spring a friend told me about Rafa and how he started a gym and I should check it out. I went to an open mat and after rolling with Rafa, I knew...Click to read more!

Jiu Jitsu Training Benefits

In case you aren't convinced with our gym services yet, here are some of many benefits that you receive by signing up.

SELF-DEFENSE

Jiu Jitsu is a great martial art and one of the benefits is the development of self-defense. Especially for women, since Jiu Jitsu uses more technique than strength. You can immobilize a person with a bigger weight than yours, for example.

REDUCES STRESS AND INCREASES WELL BEING

Any physical activity has the power to reduce stress. This is also a benefit of Jiu Jitsu. That's because our brain releases a hormone called endorphin during and after an activity. This hormone regulates the emotion and the perception of the pain, relaxing and bringing well-being to the practitioner.

DEFINE THE BODY

Jiu Jitsu, although it does not require as much force, is a great sport to define the body, because some positions require the movement of various muscles, and holding these positions helps to tone the body.

IMPROVES CARDIOVASCULAR CAPACITY

By pairing exercises on the floor along with aerobic exercises, Jiu Jitsu provides a great improvement in breathing and does well for the heart. This improves that the practitioner will not want to be without after discovering.

IMPROVES REFLEXES

Jiu Jitsu is a sport that is based more on technique than on strength, so the practitioner has to always attend to the minimum movement of his opponent.

WEIGHT LOSS

One of the main benefits of Jiu-Jitsu is weight loss. In a 90-minute class, the practitioner can lose 500 to 1000 calories.
