Is taekwondo better than Jiu Jitsu?
These martial arts rely more on athleticism than Jiu-Jitsu does. Taekwondo strikes are impressive, both in force and aesthetics, but they require tremendous flexibility. Other arts lean on strength and conditioning. If you’re into athletics, this may not be a problem.
Is Jiu Jitsu hard for beginners?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be hard on the body, especially when starting out. To prevent injuries and burn out, it’s best to start slow and work yourself up. BJJ should be paired with traditional exercise on your off days to improve your strength and cardio.
Can you learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by yourself?
BJJ requires you to become adept at using many highly specialised movements that you hardly ever use in the rest of your life. Fortunately there are BJJ solo drills to help fill the void. Being able to drill at least some of these movements yourself at home or at the dojo before class will definitely help you.
How long does it take to get a black belt in Jiu Jitsu?

Is Jiu Jitsu good for self defense?

Does Jiu Jitsu teach respect?
Kids Jiu Jitsu, especially Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, is about protection and respect. Students do not merely learn how to defend themselves from an attacker; they learn respect for their skills and how to use them appropriately and effectively.
How much does Jiu Jitsu cost?
Regardless of what you choose, you should expect to pay between $100 and $200 per month for jiu jitsu classes. There will of course be exceptions to that pricing, but for the most part it is rare to find a school who charges less than $100 per month or more than $200 a month for just jiu jitsu.
