Brazilian JIU-JITSU is a form of martial arts which was introduced in the early 1990s and since its introduction; this sport has gained an immense amount of popularity not only in Brazil but in every part of the world. People usually think that starting a JIU-JITSU carrier is too easy but it may be your dream. JIU-JITSU seems too easy but when you put your step in the training the scenario is different.
There are some tips which could help you make that challenge a little easier. But before moving further, let me tell you one thing. JIU-JITSU require lots of hard work and dedication without that you are just wasting your time and money. If you have these two qualities then you will get forward in this sport.
- You should be Physically Ready:
To get most out of your JIU-JITSU training your body should be ready to absorb all the moves and trick which you can learn in the first couple of lessons. Greater your body will absorb into your very first class the more comfortable and experienced you will be when you sparring with a live opponent. It does not mean you have to spend so much time, but your body should be physically ready for all the training which you will do in your first classes of JIU-JITSU.
Needless to say, if you want to be a part of JIU-JITSU, your body should have enough stamina to soak up all the moves and hardcore training. Over time you will surely learn some serious moves not only from your professor but also from your fellow partners.
- Should Develop A Strong Foundation:
A most often asked questions which many newbies have asked regarding JIU-JITSU is, do they have to learn all the moves? The answer will give you a bit of relief, the answer is no, you don’t have to master all the techniques but if you learn those techniques will help you out when you face any challenging opponent. According to Bruce Lee one of the famous and professional martial art combatants, I have no fear with the person who has practiced 10,000 arm locks, but I fear the man who has practiced one arm lock 10,000 times. So, you don’t have to learn all the moves but there will one special move which you can practice and become a master of it.
- Work on Your Weak Points:
Everyone has a weak point but to work on it is the challenging task. When we talk about JIU-JITSU, people usually face difficulties with the guard game. In fact, s person who is experienced and professional will have a weak point too but they know how to cope up with it. According to these professionals, working on your weak point to make it your strength is quite a hard task but it’s not impossible. If you want to win championships than don’t let the opponent know your weak point, if your opponent knows your weaker point, he/she will surely attack that point and dominate you.
Things which are Important If you are Beginning your JIU-JTSU Career:
- First, you should have a BJJ GI, because it is mandatory if you are starting a career in JIU-JITSU. Moreover, your BJJ GI should be neat and clean because a clean and proper GI wins 50%of the match for you.
- Second, the most important thing for a beginner is a rash guard.
