Jiu Jitsu Classes Teach Traverse City Adults How to Protect Themselves

People want to be safe. This fact is true regardless of where they live. In Traverse City people live in relative safety. However, one may never know when the need to defend themself may rise whether at home or when traveling. An excellent martial art for anyone to learn in order to fend off an agressor is Brazilian Jui Jitsu, which is taught in Traverse City at Seung-Ni Martial Arts.

If you've seen any MMA fights then no doubt you've seen the ground fighting that Jui Jitsu is famous for. Unlike standing and striking fighting style, not everyone can give a Jui Jitsu practicioner trouble. Anyone can swing their fists at a person, but your average thug won't know a thing about grappling on the ground. This reason alone can make Jui Jitsu appealing; only Jui Jitsu can counter Jui Jitsu.

Another reason that jui jitsu is a popular martial art for self defense is that it is less reliant on strength and flexibilty than other martial arts. Jui Jitsu is all about manipulating your opponents body and energy by targeting joints, pressure points, and balance. This allows anyone from a tall and large middle aged man to a smaller teenage girl to not only learn the martial art but to utilize it.
