Mental Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - Confidence and Self-Respect

Mental Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – Confidence and Self-Respect

Self-defense classes

The mental benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are endless, but two important ones you may not know about are confidence and self-respect. A lot of people see Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a purely physical sport but there’s a lot of mental stamina and self-talk required to knock it out of the park.

We help hundreds of people in our Active Jiu-Jitsu community become confident and proud of who they are through the power of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and self-defense. Here’s how:

 

Confidence is a Huge Advantage of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

It’s likely that you already feel confident in one area of your life- your job, your role as a parent, or your studies, for example. You might already feel confident in your body and even hit the gym every day.

But do you feel confident in your ability to protect yourself? If push came to shove (literally), would you know how to defend yourself against an attacker? Would you know how to save the lives of the people you love?

 

Self-Respect: A Little-Known Benefit

These questions are not fun, but you know what’s less fun- not knowing self-defense in an emergency and wishing you did! Learning self-defense to keep yourself and the people you love safe is so important. It’s why we have the goal of teaching everyone in Cypress how to defend themselves against an attacker.

It’s not just because it saves lives, either: imagine how much more confident you could be if you were 100% certain in your ability to handle any physical situation that came your way. Knowing how to keep yourself safe would just be one more thing for you to feel confident about. It’s a huge mental benefit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

 

How These Mental Benefits Change Lives

So we all know confidence is great to have – but why is self-respect important? It’s because once you learn to respect yourself and your body, you begin making better choices. Once you start taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes, you may notice you feel more energized.

You may start to want to eat healthier and think, “I wouldn’t be respecting my body if I ate this… I want to feel amazing so I’ll skip the chips.” You may also find yourself wanting to bike instead of driving up the street or finally making time to teach your kid how to play soccer. Then you become even more confident because you’re doing right by your body, you have more energy to do things that benefit you, and you feel in alignment with your best self.

That little conscience in your head guiding your decisions is finally being heard. Another thing – when you respect yourself, you start to treat others with more kindness and humility because you see and respect them, too. This makes others more confident because they feel understood, and then they pass that feeling on to others… and there’s a compound effect in the community. It’s kind of great, isn’t it? And it’s all because of this ancient practice we call Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Picture this – a new student will come in to start training, and within months, they’ll get promoted at work. Or negotiate a higher salary. They may even find the courage to ask someone on a date. Or speak their mind to a disrespectful colleague.

These things don’t just happen out of the blue – they happen because Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes build confidence and self-respect. Period. Again, when you respect yourself, you also start to respect other aspects of your life as well.

You recognize that you can reach new heights in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes, and you gain bravery and confidence you never knew you had. Do you see now how the mental benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can change your life? Just these two benefits- the mix of self-respect and confidence- can help you realize that other people’s judgments and the value you place on other people’s judgments are worth less than how it feels to respect yourself.

When you know how awesome you are because you’re kicking major butt in your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes, you’re not afraid to confidently create awesomeness in your own life. You take risks, embrace new opportunities, and do the things you never thought you could do. It’s awesome!

One last thing, in the classic mental health sense, the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are countless. Staying active, maintaining a fulfilling social life, and achieving new goals each week- these are pieces of the mental health checklist that every Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class checks off. Your mood and health can improve tremendously right alongside your mindset.
