Escapism and Jiu-Jitsu


Jiu-Jitsu. Our Escape From Life When We Need It...

Like many outlets, Jiu-Jitsu can provide assistance in dealing with problems in life. How it helps is different than say a therapist or a counselor. Jiu-Jitsu serves as an escape. Next time you are feeling like crap, walk into the academy and take notice of yourself and how you feel.

For the most part problems from the outside melt away when you are in the academy. The stress of relationships, or work start to take a back seat in your mental queue. Why is this? The answers may vary, but for many Jiu-Jitsu taps into escapism.

Escapism simply defined as getting away from some of the harsh realities that our everyday life provides. When you find yourself engaged in an activity, and problems from the day are no longer at the forefront of your mind you are engaged in a form escapism. This doesn’t mean avoiding our problems. Often times the time away from our problems will give us the opportunity to re-engage the problem with a fresh mind.

Speaking of the mind, here Tom DeBlass speaks on mental toughness.

Not dealing with your problems obviously isn’t healthy, but being afforded the opportunity of time and stress relief makes dealing with those problems a more manageable task. Some forms of escapism can be highly inappropriate and un-beneficial. Examples of this would be utilizing drugs or alcohol to mask and forget our problems.

Jiu-Jitsu strengthens both the mind and body. If you feel good about yourself, chances are the way you interact with the world will be much more positive. Practicing Jiu-Jitsu can teach concepts that can be extrapolated and utilized in our everyday “real” life.  Not only can it provide an escape or outlet, but it emboldens us to handle the problems in a positive way. If you can leave the gym after going through the rigors of training, there really isn’t much you can’t handle that the “real” world with throw at you.
