Marine Vet says Jiu Jitsu Changed his Life!

Watch this video of another instance where BJJ has helped someone in need.


At Bastos BJJ Midland, we have worked regularly with Veterans and First Responders who have had issues battling PTSD and the negative effects of stress (this includes just “regular” people in a desk job or working an oil rig). Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling and other grappling disciplines, offer an escape from the stresses of daily life, allowing us to focus on the task at hand. The mental and physical challenges of BJJ give you a reprieve, because you can only focus on the training. The physical aspects of this sport also allow us to get the benefits of resistance training (moving another human being), flexibility and mobility, core strength (abs and back), and cardio and high intensity intervals with rounds and training sessions of varying times.

If you think that the physical and mental benefits can help you or someone in your family; contact us at 432-296-0860 or email us at
