Epi 100 How Has BJJ Benefited You?

The BjjBrick Podcast is in iTunes, Stitcher radio, and RSS link for Andriod

Episode 100We wanted to make episode 100 of The BjjBrick Podcast a special episode that included both listeners and past guests.  This episode is full of people sharing the ways that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has benefited their lives. You will hear stories about weight loss, friendships, healthy lifestyles, drug addiction, confidence, intellectual stimulation, stress relief, and more.

The goals we had in mind with this episode.

  • If you are already training, you keep training for the long run. Hopefully you can relate to some of the off the mat benefits that BJJ is giving you and stay motivated.
  • If you do not train BJJ we want you to recognize some of the many benefits of doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  After recognizing these benefits you do what is often one of the hardest things in BJJ, you start BJJ.
