Face your fears
The Jiu Jitsu lifestyle is a unique one. It provides an outlet not only for health and self-defense, but also for testing the limits of yourself both physically and mentally. On top of this there, is an instant comradery among your peers from the first time you step on the mat.
Jiu Jitsu is one of the most difficult skills your can develop in your life. Because of this, the determination and lessons you build during the process carry over into other aspects of your life.
"I do not train in BJJ but my husband does, and I fully support him in this. His job is very stressful, and because of all his incredible teammates and teachers at The Base he is able to nearly eliminate that stress he would otherwise bring home with him. He says when he's rolling it is impossible to think about problems because if you aren't focused on your next move and studying and learning from your opponent you'll be in an arm bar in a second. You're forced to check the world at the door. Jiu Jitsu is so much more than a sport or workout. It's a lifestyle. You never stop learning. You never stop improving. You never stop growing. What I personally see is a husband who comes home relaxed and ready to take on anything when he walks through the door. His stress is diffused. His mind is clear. He smiles. He laughs. He's balanced. And that helps ME stay balanced. So even though I don't train in BJJ I certainly hope my husband never stops."
"I have two children (age 12, girl and 14, boy) and a husband (age withheld because he thinks he's 20) going to The Base on a regular basis. I can tell you all three of them are very happy. All three of them love it for different reasons; proving this is a great family-friendly environment. Keep up the good work The Base!"
