Why Healthcare Workers should learn Jiu Jitsu

My Clinic:

Jujitsu is a form of grappling that originated in Japan and was brought to Brazil and America by the Gracie family. It is highly effective in combat and has been adopted by various military and special forces. Healthcare workers can benefit from learning jujitsu as it improves cardiovascular health, muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, and balance. It also reduces stress, anxiety, and depression, promotes mental discipline, problem-solving, and resilience, and enhances mindfulness and body awareness. Jujitsu provides self-defense skills that can be used to protect oneself and others in healthcare settings.
