Martial arts is a great way to personally develop and improve yourself both physically and mentally. Some people choose to push themselves by testing their skills and abilities against those of another martial artist and by doing so, they can become a stronger person and reap great benefits, and here's how!
With UFC 200 approaching this weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to take a look at the humble beginnings of the UFC and review the conclusions we can draw based on the first ever world-wide showcasing of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and it's place in the world of martial arts.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches us more than merely self defense. Imagine, if you will, you are driving down the highway at 55 mph when suddenly, your tire blows out. Your car immediately begins to pull hard to the right into other lanes of traffic, and right away you feel your heart jump into your throat. How could BJJ possibly help with that?
