benefitsBenefits of Jujitsu Based Self-Defence

Many people believe that martial arts are just for self defence. This could not be further from the truth. Because of its origins in the Orient, Jujitsu is based on the principles of integrity, humility, respect, patience, perseverance, and loyalty.

This philosophy is the cornerstone of the conduct indicative of a genuine Jujitsu practitioner.

However, Jujitsu is much more than an effective method of self defence, offering many physical and health benefits, and also providing a way to relieve the stresses of modern life. Psychologists recognise that where stress is concerned, a change is better than a rest and many are recommending martial arts as an antidote to the problem.

Some way to relieve the pressures that regularly occur is needed. The total concentration employed while in a Jujitsu class effectively blows away the cobwebs giving the student a complete break from the worries and tensions which gradually sap peoples' energy and drive. Students commonly arrive for class feeling drained after a tough day and leave feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Self discipline, self confidence, self control, respect for others, co-operation, fitness, agility, self defence skills and focus are just some of the benefits and values gained from Jujitsu.

There are visible rewards as well as these intangible benefits for students.
The visible rewards include different coloured belts that are symbols of ever increasing proficiency in Jujitsu, the encouragement to continue when things seem difficult and the verbal acknowledgement of goals achieved and awards earned. Each of these enhances the young person's character and contributes to his/her self worth as well as promoting a sense of responsibility and maturity.
