The WJJ Lifestyle
Jiu Jitsu as we teach it at World Jiu Jitsu Academy is more than a Martial Art, more than a self defense system or a combat sport.
We truly believe that lessons learned and values explored in our classes are life changing. Jiu Jitsu teaches self preservation, the ability to escape your outside stressors and to begin focusing your energy on what you can control. Constantly observing, repeating, experimenting and evaluating your goal of 1% improvement every day.
We use the practice of Jiu Jitsu to explore lessons in perseverance, respect, integrity, discipline, excellence, humility and self control.
We believe that when our students are fit, focused, confident and sharp in all of their physical and mental capacities; they become much more successful individuals and of course progress faster in Jiu Jitsu.
This is why we seek to inspire our students to become a better, leaner, faster and more productive and effective version of themselves. Therefore using Jiu Jitsu to transcend self defense and tournament winning techniques to have a greater impact on our student’s lives.
