Once you start practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you begin to experience a number of benefits. You improve your body, mind, and even your quality of life.
One of the most significant changes many students experience is a boost in confidence. Here are a few ways that BJJ increases self-confidence:
1. You learn to defend yourself.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches you a practical skill that ultimately leads to an increase in your confidence level. Learning the skills to defend yourself, if ever needed, can go a long way in how you present yourself to the outside world.
2. You improve your physical health and fitness.
Another way that BJJ boosts your confidence is by improving your physical health and fitness. When you feel better physically, you’re more likely to feel more confident as well.
3. You become more open to expanding your social circle.
It’s not always easy to put yourself out there and meet new people. BJJ creates an environment where you can be more relaxed and comfortable enough to expand your social circle with new relationships.
4. You’re more willing to take on new challenges.
BJJ is a continual learning process. You’re always taking on something new and challenging. Rather than backing down from these challenges, you learn how to face them and work through the process. This willingness to take on new challenges also contributes to the belief you have in yourself.
5. You get better at making mistakes and overcoming failures.
No one trains BJJ perfectly. You will make mistakes and get better at overcoming your failures. This process is how you grow in the sport. And as you get more comfortable with working through mistakes and errors, you also increase your confidence.
