Anger Management and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
The root of anger lies in feelings like frustration, fear, failure, stress, rejection etc., which most people face on a daily basis. It can be through peer pressure or unhealthy competition. Eventually anger takes a toll on them — emotionally and physically. Anger is known to increase the chances of high blood pressure and heart attack. It also affects a person’s capability to think logically and take right decision. In some cases this can sever relationships. Proper anger management can help a person use his feelings to solve a problem rather than wasting time and filling oneself with negativity.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, though an art of self defense, can help a practitioner in anger management too. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu discourages an athlete from attacking an unaware or unprepared person. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athletes are strictly discouraged from using techniques that aim at injuring the opponent. Athletes are responsible for the safety of their opponent. While applying any of the submission techniques, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athletes must apply the pressure slowly. They must stop the moment they feel that any further pressure can injure the athlete. This teaches a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete the clarity of purpose, which is to make the opponent submit and not hurting him. It also teaches them to respect their opponent’s strength.
Practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires an athlete to be self disciplined. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athletes are discouraged from using foul language during a match and badmouthing. Checking these tendencies helps in cutting the negative feelings of the person. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training includes exercises like kickboxing, which are known to help in washing away the negative thoughts of a person.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be of special help to parents who have a tough time controlling their child’s temper. Children can imbibe these qualities in their life at an early stage and put them into practice.
