women should be in Jiu Jitsu : without it you may suffocate

Kids Martial Arts in Kansas City - Brass Boxing & Jiu Jitsu

One of the things I remember most about my first few Jiu Jitsu classes is the feeling of suffocation.  Jiu Jitsu is essentially learning to fight on the ground making it a phenomenal self defense training opportunity.  To someone who knows nothing of this life changing sport, it looks a lot like wrestling.  It puts people in your personal space.  Your hot, tired and the feeling of panic creeps in as someone tries to hold you down.  When I was in class I would often feel as though a blanket was over my head when my opponent was closer than 18 inches.   Now, what if your in a dangerous situation?  Can you imagine the fear one would endure? The panic and a feeling of suffocation setting in as someone you don't know is in your personal space and your not in a safe controlled environment.  It's difficult to think about.  The amazing thing about Jiu Jitsu is the way it conditions you brain.  Part of this art in particular is learning to stay calm under pressure. Learning to find a breathing hole where there seemingly is none.  Learning slow your heart rate in a desperate situation or feeling of defeat.
There are possibly infinite number of reasons women should be in Jiu Jitsu and we'll touch on more next time.  For now, I just want to drive home the idea that you don't want the first time someone is in your personal space to be the first time you have to defend yourself.  Don't send your daughters off to college with little to no body awareness.  Learning to protect yourself is so empowering, it changes the core of your being.
