Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is Amazing for Weight-Loss!


Why does BJJ work so well for weight loss?

In my opinion, it’s because it’s fun. There are tons of things that really work the muscles, or develop cardio, or burn calories. But they aren’t worth a damn if you don’t enjoy doing them. You won’t stick with it.

There’s one thing that sticks out for me when I read about these people dropping serious weight doing BJJ. Basically, each person talks about how they had fun training. The fun made them work hard, it made them not skip class, and it made them stick with it over the long haul. Almost all of them also reported that their overall lifestyle had changed.


The addition of Brazilian jiu jitsu to their life has created a revolution that touches areas like sleep, diet, and hydration. Not only is BJJ a good way to lose weight, it’s a way to turn your life around.
