Should You Weightlift in Jiu-Jitsu?
In my early days as a Jiu-Jitsu student I was told that to be good at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu that I shouldn’t lift weights. I was told it adversely effects your technique because you want to use the proper angle instead of muscling through a position to be most effective.

6 Benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

● Direction ● Confidence

● Fitness ● Self-Esteem

● Coordination ● Self-Defense

Direction: participating in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu learn how to set goals, the knowledge necessary, and to do the work needed to achieve them. BJJ is a structured program with belts and patches acknowledging personal achievement. Belts display both effort, time, and experience in training. Each belt has tested requirements (skills/knowledge/exp) in order to be promoted to the next belt level. You become aware of the requirements and are encouraged to set goals, and work toward their achievement.
