Combat Sports versus Traditional Martial Arts
There is an honesty to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
All the combat sports have it.
We’ll explain in this short post what’s a ‘combat sport‘ martial art versus a traditional martial art.
Combat Sports versus Traditional Martial Arts.
There are so many different styles of martial arts from karate, tae kwon do, kung fu, and krav maga to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu MMA (mixed martial arts), Muay Thai kickboxing, boxing, wrestling, Judo, Sambo and more!
It can be confusing to those not familiar with martial arts when they’re thinking about training for themselves or their kids.
This blog post talks a little about understanding the combat sports martial arts like Jiu Jitsu and why it’s a great way to get all the benefits of martial arts training in a realistic environment and without the head trauma!
You have an active lab on the mat. You can test what works and what does not.
If it fails, you know it. This provides an immediate feedback so you can course correct and continue improving.
In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we only do what works.
If it doesn’t work, we don’t do it. If we can improve on a technique, we do.
Jiu Jitsu is not locked into a rigid ideology from a thousand years ago. It’s constantly evolving. This makes it a very realistic style to use in self defense or in MMA.
In many other martial arts this is not be the case. Often in martial arts, techniques are taught for tradition, not for functionality.
The combat arts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling, Sambo, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Boxing, and MMA are different and focus on functional techniques that can be used against a resisting opponent that is trying to defeat you.
The advantage of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is that you can practice these techniques in a safe environment without getting punched and kicked in the head (or body!).
