Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that originated in Brazil but has gained international popularity since it has proven its efficiency over the years. It focuses on ground fighting and submission techniques, making it distinct from many other martial arts that emphasize striking.

BJJ's focus on ground control, submissions, and positional dominance makes it highly effective for self-defense. The idea is simple: close the distance from your opponent to avoid striking, takedown and submit. The technique is based on leverage allowing individuals to control and subdue larger and stronger opponents.

We offer classes in Modiin and Shoham for children, youth and adults. Always in a safe and professional environment.

10 reasons to train with us

Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) offers a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional benefits. Whether you're interested in self-defense, fitness, competition, or personal growth, BJJ can be a rewarding pursuit. Here are some reasons why someone might choose to train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:

1. Self-Defense:

BJJ focuses on techniques that allow a smaller, weaker individual to defend themselves against larger opponents. It emphasizes leverage, proper positioning, and submissions to control and neutralize attackers.

4. Stress Relief:

Engaging in physical activity releases endorphins, which can help reduce stress and improve mood. The focus required during BJJ training can also serve as a distraction from daily worries.

7. Social Interaction:

BJJ is often practiced in a group setting, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie. You'll develop strong bonds with training partners, learn from others, and create lasting friendships.

2. Physical Fitness: 

BJJ provides an intense full-body workout that improves cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. The dynamic movements and grappling techniques promote functional strength.

5. Confidence: 

As you progress in BJJ and overcome challenges, you'll gain confidence in your abilities. The skills you develop can translate into a stronger self-assurance in various aspects of life.

8. Humbling Experience:

BJJ exposes practitioners to situations where they might be dominated by opponents with superior skills. This humbling experience can foster personal growth, resilience, and a willingness to learn from failures.

3. Problem-Solving:

BJJ is often described as a physical chess game. It requires strategic thinking and quick decision-making. Practitioners learn to read their opponent's movements, anticipate their actions, and respond with appropriate techniques.

6. Discipline:

BJJ demands consistency, dedication, and discipline to improve. Regular training teaches time management, setting goals, and working persistently toward them.

9. Cognitive Benefits:

Learning the intricacies of BJJ techniques and strategies engages your mind. It requires problem-solving, spatial awareness, and adaptability, which can help keep your cognitive abilities sharp.

10. Mind-Body Connection:

BJJ encourages practitioners to be aware of their body's movements, positioning, and balance. This heightened body awareness can extend to better posture, movement, and everyday activities.
