Starting Jiu Jitsu after 40

There are many benefits of starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) after 40, including:

  • Improved physical fitness. BJJ is a great way to get in shape, regardless of your age. It is a full-body workout that will help you build strength, flexibility, and endurance.
  • Increased self-defense skills. BJJ is a highly effective self-defense martial art. It teaches you how to protect yourself from a variety of attacks, including strikes, kicks, and grappling.
  • Reduced stress levels. BJJ can be a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. The physical exertion and mental focus required for BJJ can help you to clear your mind and relax.
  • Made new friends. BJJ classes are a great way to meet new people and make friends. You will be training with people of all ages and backgrounds, which can help you to expand your social circle.
  • Increased confidence. As you learn BJJ, you will gain a sense of confidence and self-assurance. You will know that you have the skills and knowledge to defend yourself, which can give you a boost in your overall confidence.

If you are over 40 and are considering starting BJJ, I encourage you to do so. It is a great way to improve your physical fitness, self-defense skills, stress levels, and social life.

Here are some additional tips for starting BJJ after 40:

  • Start slowly and gradually increase your intensity. You should not try to do too much too soon. Start with a few classes per week and gradually increase your training as you get stronger and more confident.
  • Listen to your body and take breaks when you need them. It is important to listen to your body and take breaks when you need them. Pushing yourself too hard can lead to injuries, so it is important to be patient and let your body adapt to the new demands of BJJ.
  • Have fun! BJJ should be enjoyable, so make sure that you are having fun. If you are not enjoying yourself, you are less likely to stick with it.

I hope this helps!
