Jiu Jitsu Classes For Adults : Can you teach an Old Dog New Tricks?
I talk to people on a daily basis that want to start learning Jiu Jitsu classes and they are in their late 20’s, early 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and above.
Of course, they always start off with ” Well, at my age..” and then kind of go from there on why it’s going to be hard, or shitty to stat Jiu Jitsu. I get it, aging sucks. Have positive attitude towards learning something new.
You should know that it’s still a really reasonable goal, and still VERY worthwhile to start training Jiu Jitsu as an adult.
“Mata Leao has all kinds of people that train with us. We have people of all ages, and in fact, one of our Brown Belt instructors ( who is very technically sound) is one of the most Senior ranking members in age. He’s still a beast and is still ripped. If this man is in his 60’s and still learning and getting better, then you can too.”
Maybe you’re afraid of getting squashed on the mat. Well, that’s Jiu Jitsu for ya. And let me tell you. You get better REALLY fast when you take Jiu Jitsu Classes for Adults. It’s like you brain goes into learning mode without you knowing it, and then before you know it, you’re trying to tap another guy out.
We do not discriminate at Mata Leao: we always accept people who are ready to learn, regardless of their age. You’re going to be so proud of yourself that you put on the Gi, got on the mat, and started learning one of the coolest martial arts ever invented. In a couple years, you’ll be older of course, but you’ll have really taken your game to the next level and you’ll be a mutant mat monster in comparison to when you started. You’ll be a back-taking freak. You’ll start shredding and get your game plan. We do that at Mata Leao, invest in you to develop your game and it’s not just the instructors that do that.
