Jiu-Jitsu Helping The Physical And Emotional Scar Of Wounded Warriors

Wounded Warriors

There is no doubt that war can be detrimental to a person, which means finding relief is crucial to many wounded warriors. One trend that is worth looking into is the one that says battling wounds of war through Jiu-Jitsu is possible.

NATO partners and Danish wounded warriors received a lesson from a former Navy SEAL Commanding Officer about the power of Jiu-Jitsu. He spoke about how the martial art helps reprogram the mind and increase self-reliance. The sport also seems to push the body to its limits and induce relaxation.

Many warriors out there come back wounded and sometimes feel defeated. Some of them feel as if there is no outlet they can use to return to normality, which sometimes leads to depression.

Some warriors simply miss the camaraderie among fellow service people. It is no secret that those who serve form a bond with each other that cannot be replicated elsewhere. Many soldiers have been able to regain that support by joining a Jiu-Jitsu class.

This is mostly because many of the same values used to become a service member are used in Jiu-Jitsu. There is dedication, honor, and many other values, which makes it an easy sport to adapt to.

Those who practice this kind of sport also enjoy some of the benefits. There are meditative aspects to the sport that help service people deal with possible mental issues. The constant amount of exercise also helps improve circulation, which is vital for the body if it is still recuperating.

The sport is becoming increasingly popular all over the world and more accessible. This means a service person who is interested in taking up the sport can do so, and there is likely a class nearby.
