Beyond self-defense, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaches skills that encourage personal development including honor, self-respect and respect for others while enforcing a strong moral and ethical code. It improves confidence, patience, situational awareness, mental strength and the ability to think clearly and decisively under pressure. Jiu-jitsu also encourages overall health, promoting a healthy diet while discouraging the consumption of anything that may harm the body. In order to ensure you enjoy all of the benefits of this beautiful art, it is important to learn from a qualified, experienced and certified professor in a safe and supportive environment like the one you will find at LX Jiu-Jitsu.
