Many members at Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy have said that Jiu Jitsu is also a great stress-relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their strength and thoughts into grappling on the mats.

In Jiu Jitsu you need to have a training partner to practice with, so you spend a lot of time with the other students in your class. By creating a bond of trust and reciprocation, you and your grappling partner can then practice various techniques on each other and see what works or doesn’t work. This martial art cannot be learned based solely on the use of paddles or punching bags. Members at Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy have become close friends and help each other refine their skills and reach their goals.
