Is Jiu Jitsu Like Chess? Why It Totally Is

So, in the brief soiree that I’ve had in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I’ve learned a lot about the sport. First off, it is almost closer to chess than fist fighting, and secondly, the sport will teach you how to be humble and of how to learn as much as possible. It also teaches you the value of persistence, of people skills, of momentum and positioning, and of how to be a better version of yourself. I truly believe that you probably learn more about people and about human nature by practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu than you do in say getting a BA in Psychology. It really teaches you a lot about yourself and about what you are capable of. And while I have a Black Belt in Taekwondo, a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a completely different animal, and I think that it might be something that I should go for at some point in my life. While work is pretty crazy right now, and while I think I might start to look into golf as maybe a sport that I can use to bring in clients and potentially help me build a better wealth management career, I feel like something is pulling me towards Jiu Jitsu, so I may have to give it a shot in the next year or so, will report back. Till next time, you heard it first right here at Inflation!
