Living Better with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, also known as BJJ, has been slowly crept into the mainstream. With the surge of combat sports in pop culture, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has made a stand as one of the most superior martial arts. The art was initially designed to give an advantage for a smaller individual to control and subdue a much larger foe. Not only does this martial art have significant benefits when it comes to self defense, it also has an incredible cardiovascular benefit. It is estimated that a moderate training session can burn 4 calories per pound per hour. For a person that weighs 150 lbs, that would burn 600 calories in only one hour. Of course, as intensity increases so does the amount of calories burned. For a great workout and learning how to defend yourself, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great choice.
