Why Does Jiu-Jitsu Work So Well With Weight Loss?


Trouble with losing weight? Jiu-Jitsu can help!

Far to often when people set out to lose weight they do so with traditional fitness means. This could include treadmills, ellipticals, and free weights for the average part. What happens to some folks who use the traditional way of fitness is they lose interest. Working out for some is hard to stay motivated for, especially if it seems like a chore and sometimes machines that resemble an actual hamster wheel.


Jiu-Jitsu provides ample benefits that assist with weight loss. First off Jiu-Jitsu is an outlet for many people. Stepping into the academy can have a profound effect on your stress levels. Ask any practitioner and they’ll tell you about how the stresses of life shed away when training. This provides a clear mind to focus on your task at hand.

This task involves learning a game of death with a bunch of like minded individuals who will safely show you how to destroy your attackers. Hyperbole aside, Jiu-Jitsu takes the complex concept of fighting and makes it seem normal. Jiu-Jitsu people find their peace on the mats while other people attempt to strangle them. All the while you focus on Jiu-Jitsu you will have the side effect of burning A LOT of calories.

The weight loss industry wants you to believe there is a quick and easy fix to your weight issue. We know the truth. For the most part it’s pretty simple. Eat the best most nutritious foods, and workout. This simple concept gets very convoluted with all of the weight loss companies pushing their new formula for fat loss. The best part of Jiu-Jitsu for those looking to lose weight is that your focus can be on learning a new craft instead of how many calories burnt on the treadmill.

While we go into the last month of the year, maybe instead of waiting until the new year to change your life you could start a month earlier. This might make you feel slightly less guilty when all of the holiday food trays get brought out.

Speaking of great timing, Tom DeBlass has an entire 12-week program to help you with your weight loss. You can find out more about one of the best in Jiu-Jitsu and his approach to weight loss HERE
