When you're rolling in BJJ, you're playing a real life video game with you as the main character!
You'll have to train your character by going to classes
You'll level up by earning stripes and belts like when characters earn points.
Levelling up involves learning new skills/techniques just like in video games.
You can wear different skins/gis.
Different styles beat each other like rock, paper and scissors like in video games as well
So come try out BJJ and live out your childhood dreams!
Really, It's Just So Much Fun!
Rolling around is fun! While this is largely forgotten by adults (though not by BJJ enthusiasts), everyone can see this is true for kids. Let me tell you that it's still really fun as an adult!
BJJ involves a lot of rolling around on mats with a partner in a technical manner. The human body is designed to move!
Lastly, BJJ allows sparring in safe and fun manner that other striking sports can't do. This is evident in striking sports, where people are made to wear very large protective head and body gears and gloves. Whereas in BJJ, barely any protective gear is usually worn.
BJJ is like playing an extremely technical game with lots of strategy, tactics and techniques as described above.
