With over 5,000 years of history, yoga is one of the favorite forms of exercise for active people today. A mix of movement, breathing and meditation, this ancient set of techniques can and will help you with your conditioning for a better performance on the mats. We went after yoga instructor Angela Kent and black-belt Flavio Almeida and they shared the following eight ways yoga can help your jiu-jitsu training.
Our goal is to make the amazing self-defense system, sport & martial art called jiu-jitsu known to as many people as possible in our community. Everybody knows karate and judo. But not everybody has heard of jiu-jitsu, whether it be a more traditional style or a more sport oriented style like BJJ. We created this blog to help the public understand what jiu-jitsu is all about. We believe that many people would benefit from jiu-jitsu … only if they knew.
