BJJ Kids

Lemme just say, I love seeing kids who enjoy a little jiu jitsu. They’re not in it for the trophies, the medals, the belts, swords or whatever. They actually have this thirst for the knowledge of the art. They light up when they finally master that new submission or even when they don’t, they don’t get frustrated and give up.
Not to mention they look cute in their little gis haha.
I dunno, some adults could learn a thing or two from these kids.

Jiu-Jitsu for sure will save your ass, one way or another. Not necessarily a physical fight but also being able to deal with yourself, know about yourself, and really improve yourself as a whole.

The deepest benefits of Jiu Jitsu come off the mat. It encourages a world-view based upon the idea of rational problem solving. Jiu Jitsu is all about solving problems that are rapidly changing under stress, and that gives you an ability to identify the crux of the problem in front of you, even in a stressful situation and adapt your body and tactics to overcome that problem and to continue overcoming it as the problem itself changes. It encourages you to use a very rational trial and error method, basically the same method that science uses to overcome these problems. So it gives you this sort of problem solving mindset, which I think applies throughout life itself.

@realroyce proving the effectiveness of Jiu Jitsu. No gloves. No time limits. No rules. Outweighed by 80 pounds. Anyone training or teaching Jiu Jitsu today should be grateful that Royce Gracie was willing to prove what he believed in.
Well, maybe not die.
