Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport and self defence system based on grappling and especially ground fighting with a strong focus on positional control and submissions.

Through developing balance, fitness, coordination and body awareness, as well as an understanding of positional hierarchy and body mechanics, practitioners are able to gain and maintain control over a resisting opponent, while exposing opportunities to perform chokes or joint locks. More Details

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Class In Melbourne

One of the most talked-about martial arts is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It’s referenced at every UFC event and has been the difference between fighters that have incredible punching and knockout power and those who possess the ability to grapple and gain positional control on the ground that leads to submissions. The rise of this martial art in recent years has led to plenty of interest in BJJ classes in Melbourne as well as across Australia. Since 2002, Dominance MMA has been the number one team for recreational and elite BJJ athletes in Melbourne.

How Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Improves Your Mental Game

Naturally, anyone who decides to look into BJJ will likely have some fitness goals driving them to do so. However, there are plenty of mental positives to take away from training this martial art. While other combat sports are dependent on fitness, power or agility, BJJ is very much a strategic, mental game.

Drilling techniques in a controlled setting is one thing but applying them while live training is extremely challenging, both physically and mentally. Anyone that undertakes this martial art will quickly appreciate that while it can be difficult to master, it is intensely rewarding along the way. With appropriate teachers and a supportive and skilled community, the whole team learn and grow together, mastering their minds as well as their bodies.

At Dominance, we believe that more people would benefit from engaging in martial arts. BJJ is the perfect counter to our modern, tech heavy, sedentary lifestyles. Not only are you moving your body, improving strength, flexibility and coordination, but training is a great form of dynamic meditation and mindfulness as well. When you are on the mats, as you think about your techniques, your partners next move, or the sensations in your body, it is very hard to be caught up in your thoughts of life outside that moment. It is a great way to let go of the frustrations of the day positively and to confront and release stress.

Jiu-Jitsu classes in Melbourne may not be the first thing that comes to mind if you are asked how to improve your ability for dealing with stress, but this is absolutely true. This martial art involves plenty of live training to take you out of your comfort zone in a safe and controlled environment and teaches students to overcome the mental obstacles these situations present. It’s an effective way to train your mind to adapt, cope and take control of a situation successfully. These mental benefits are essential for those who find themselves overcome by stress in the real world.
