Jiu-Jitsu Yourself Happy

30 Sep, 2023

Jiu-Jitsu releases endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endogenous opioids – these are neurochemicals that boost mood, motivation, social bonding, and cognition. Now ‘that’s’ not available through any supplements or ‘positive thinking. You simply need to turn up, train, learn and evolve… both mentally and physically.

Jiu-Jitsu as a martial art is one of the most intricate, taking huge commitment and dedication to get to that ‘black belt’ status.
According to WHO (World Health Organisation) the world is heading for a mental health epidemic, the work that martial arts does in our community is keeping some of those mental health issues away for our students, by boosting their happy chemicals and being part of our community.

Over the past 10 years in the UK, martial arts has become more and more popular. Gone are the days of a few ‘mats in a school hall’ or in ‘the back room of a gym’. The UK now has large numbers of premium marital arts facilities taking children from as young as 3 years old.

At Gracie Barra Yate we specialise in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the most amazing self-defence martial art in the world (we might be a little bit biased!)

Within the premium facility in your local Yate school, we have huge matted areas, a beautiful community, world-class high-level instructors, and premium changing areas.

What we can’t describe is the way Jiu-jitsu makes you feel… that, you need to find out for yourself.
