Poughkeepsie Aikido has some great applications for self-defense. It is great for avoiding conflict and escaping unharmed. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also offers great ways out of fights but in addition it offers the chance for you to decide where the fight goes. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focus not just on take downs, but also what you do when you get there. Perhaps most importantly, it shows you what to to if you get put on the ground. What do you do if someone puts you on your back? What happens if you are put in a bad situation, by a larger and stronger opponent? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t just show you how to get out of the worst case scenario, it shows you how to become dangerous when your opponent feels they are winning. BJJ practitioners regularly sweep or submit larger opponents who don’t know what kind of art they are going up against.
The spiritual or Philosophical aspects of Poughkeepsie Aikido are very well known. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has some very rewarding intellectual facets to it. The idea behind Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that you always assume a disadvantage. In the mind of a BJJ practitioner you are always the smaller, weaker and slower fighter. This approach is what separates Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from other arts. It can become a hugely influential ideology in your day to day life. The power of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is in its truth. It is a truth that you confront daily in the gym. The truth of the armbar, the sit over sweep and the Mata Leao will continue to amaze you well into your path to being a Black Belt.
