The Benefits Of BJJ 

At Seeds 13 BJJ Academy, we believe that training can help every adult develop the mental and physical skills they need to succeed in life. BJJ isn’t just about self-defense like so many believe. BJJ is the only martial art that does not include striking or hitting, instead it uses leverage to subdue your opponent. With proper training a small person can control a larger person. Benefits of training include self-confidence, improved focus, physical strength, and positive social interaction. Seeds 13 teaches our members to set goals, work hard, and follow-through, all the while having fun and making friends.

Variety Workouts/Stress Relief
BJJ helps build mental toughness, teaches the value of hard work, and gives you the persistence you need in everyday life. Many members at Seeds 13 have said that BJJ is also a great stress-relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their strength and thoughts into grappling on the mats. It is a workout where you have to use your intelligence to problem solve and figure out how to get out from your opponent’s hold on you. By engaging your brain during class, BJJ can help provide a completely different workout that you won’t find anywhere else.

 

Community

In BJJ you need to have a training partner to practice with, so you spend a lot of time with the other students in your class. By creating a bond of trust and reciprocation, you and your grappling partner can then practice various techniques on each other and see what works or doesn’t work. This martial art cannot be learned based solely on the use of paddles or punching bags. Members at Seeds 13 have become close friends and help each other refine their skills and reach their goals.
