There’s a deceiving amount to learn in BJJ, starting with basic positions, sweeps, transitions, and submissions. There’s a huge amount of techniques you could potentially learn, and because no one opponent is exactly the same, you’ll be forced to constantly adapt which of these techniques you use. That’s just the technique portion. Then there are the subtle concepts embedded within jiu-jitsu like balance, leverage, framing, and more. It’s unlikely you’ll run out of new things to learn in BJJ. One of the first differences you will notice after you begin training is how easy it is to lose weight and keep it off. Jiu-jitsu works every muscle in your body so you will notice a difference almost immediately. And the best part is that you will not even notice how hard you are working! One of the most difficult aspects of training for weight-loss is that too easily we focus on how much time we are on the treadmill or how many calories we have burned. But with Brazilian jiu-jitsu, your mind is focused on technique and facing off against your partner instead of staring at a blinking screen of information. In fact, many of the top athletes in the sport actually came to jiu-jitsu as a way to lose weight and then discovered a deep love for the sport and made a career out of it.
