Let me tell you a secret. I came to Dublin for a short period of time (8 months) and I decided to stay longer only because of Jiu Jitsu. So why is Jiu Jitsu so special that I wanted to stay in Dublin.
The passion for learning. I love learning new skills and this is the perfect sport to always play the student role. It doesn’t matter how many years you’ve been training, there is always something new to be learnt.
Who doesn’t like challenges? Even if you’re not into competitions, during sparring you can try those new techniques you’ve learnt in class. It might not work at the beginning, but you just got yourself a new challenge to overcome!
A new BJJ Family. This may be a little bit personal but as a foreign student, the academy became my home away from home. It feels good to know that they will always be there no matter what happens.
Everyone has their own reasons why to practice BJJ. But the truth is everyone has fun learning how to choke people!
