“I Can’t Afford Jiu-Jitsu”

I can’t afford Jiu-Jitsu 

A common phrase in the martial arts community, specifically in the BJJ Arena is this: “I can’t afford to train in BJJ”.  Let’s dig in to this a bit deeper.

To me,  that’s like asking for the price of a car, and getting an answer, and saying you can’t afford it without knowing the various options that are available on this car!  Maybe another option is available, no?

Look at it this way, if you “can’t afford “BJJ” without questioning and knowing what your benefits of training are, how can you make an informed decision?

To those who say they can’t  afford BJJ, I will respectfully say, if you and/or your child has an interest: “you can’t afford NOT to train in BJJ!”

Would you let your kids train in BJJ if, for less that $4 per day your child will:

*Improve their focus in school

*Prove that suspected ADHD is actually just a boy being a boy

*Enhance theIr Physical fitness

*Exude Self Confidence

*Raise their Grades

*Become more Calm

*Improve their coordination

Adults can also dramatically improve their lives, and obtain the worlds best self-defense system known to man!  In addition to the above benefits, you will:

*Get in shape & stay in shape

*Reduce Stress in your life 

*Maintain a Sense of ‘well-being’

*Assist with your kids classes (after specific training)

All for less than $4 per day….about the price of a good cup of coffee!

Experts say that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the single GREATEST Self-Defense System in the world; especially for the average Joes and Average Jane’s in our community. 

Size, Strength, Speed, or Athleticism are NOT necessary!  It’s all about Leverage, Timing, and Acquired Knowledge….over time.

Just Show Up…..

You can’t afford not to!
