We found some similarities between Jiu-Jitsu and Love and we want to share with you!
No wonder we love jiu-jitsu so much!
Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection, to the simplest pleasure.And what’s Jiu-Jitsu if not the gentle art of strengthening your mind with a positive mental state, that comes from a good and healthy habit that you develop when you start training Jiu-Jitsu.
Yes, that’s righ, number 1 that Jiu-Jitsu and love have in comom is in both cases the Hugs are essencial! When you love someone you wanna hold then tight and never let go! Does it sound familar for the BJJ comunity? Of course, the hugs in Jiu-Jitsu are more like chokes, but it has the same idea, you hold then tight and never let go!
2. Serotonine Levels
That amazing feeling you feel when you are in love with someone, you can also find in Jiu-Jitsu! Regular excercise in a more intense way releases tryptophan into your blood, more tryptophan reaches your brain. And tryptophan is converted to serotonin during exercise. That’s why you feel so good after a Jiu-Jitsu class.
Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Same in Jiu-Jitsu, can you see it? Jiu-Jitsu is used for protection, also you have to trust the person you’re training with, you always hope your game is getting better and you get it by persevering everyday.
The loyalty in Jiu-Jitsu is so strong like a bond between 2 people that love each other.
You find love in the most simple gestures, in the most simple way. The more simple and genuine is the love you feel the more pure it gets.
is Jiu-Jitsu any different? No! The simple and basic work better and Jiu-Jitsu, the simple moves you make in Jiu-Jitsu are the most effective in your game. The more complicated ones are the ones you’re probably going to miss a position or are not going to work.
