It is focused on Jiu Jitsu sparring, technical practice, and weights.
How did the sport of Jiu Jitsu impact you on a personal level? Why do you recommend youth to practice the sport?
My life is connected to Jiu Jitsu. I think such life is useful for many young people, too. It is recommended to do Jiu Jitsu for life, as the sport works with mutual courtesy and courtesy with your teachers.

Competition with the best is always exciting. You learn to be stronger through them.

Would you like to give any advice to our readers that would help them either on the mat or in their lives?
“Everyone on the mat, please stay on the mat”. It’s a space where you find important things in your life. It can be a Jiu Jitsu development or a fun space to find someone’s weaknesses. I think Jiu Jitsu is the only martial art that you don’t get tired of, even if you learn it for a long time. Everyone stays for a long time.
