Jiu-jitsu as an Anti-Bullying Mechanism / Self-defense Technique for Teenagers as well as Middle and Grade-school Students - Why is it so Effective?

Jiu-jitsu as an Anti-Bullying Mechanism Self-defense technique for teenagers as well as middle and grade-school students - why is it so effective? 

The basis of Jiu-jitsu is having a lighter person able to overtake a much larger, stronger opponent. Jiu-jitsu uses physics, leverage, and kinesiology in order to defeat a larger opponent not to mention the ground reactive forces in order to help defend oneself or immobilize a stronger opponent.

We often get inquiries about self-defense courses. As a karate and taekwondo black belt with my whole life dedicated to martial arts, I can say that most self-defense courses do not work because you have not trained the muscle memory in order to react to stress. Your body has to react -- not think -- when it comes to a self-defense situation. Constant training will enable you to react properly. Proper conditioning of your body will allow you to react, execute a technique perfectly in order to escape or defend yourself. 

Now, why is jiu-jitsu very effective in self-defense situations for school-aged children? As we know in school nowadays, if a child is bullied and the child fights back and strikes, both children are suspended. Therefore, a child may hesitate to defend themselves. As a parent, I know that is very disheartening.

In jiu-jitsu, you don't strike back. You would go ahead and control your opponent or control the bully or subdue the aggressor with controlling moves. This prevents unnecessary injury to the assailant as well as prevent unnecessary punishment to the victim. In a self-defense situation, you hold down an opponent or an aggressor, you are less likely to be treated as the aggressor when law enforcement or teachers or administrators arrive at the scene. Brazilian Jiu jitsu teaches you how to control your assailant or opponent through rigorous training as well as live rolls, live sparring, as well as real life scenarios. You get trained and practice BJJ drills everyday. The recommended amount of courses to take is about 2 to 3 times a week about one hour a day in order to train your body and mind to be prepared for these self-defense situations.

At Global Jiu-jitsu Naples Florida, we go over real-life scenarios as well as ways to safeguard yourself and your family. Stay safe.
