  • Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 3: Growth through Failure)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 3: Growth through Failure) By Ted Chittenden 2/24/2022 www.madsciencejudoandjiujitsu.com Growth through failure Failure is just part of life, but it is critical for our growth and development both in Jiu-Jitsu and in our personal lives.

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 2: Beyond Fighting) By Ted Chittenden 2/8/2022 www.madsciencejudoandjiujitsu.com This part of “Why Jiu-Jitsu” will focus on benefits that Jiu-Jitsu can bring into your life that go beyond the ability to fight and defend yourself against other human beings.

Without question, our Jiu-Jitsu can provide the individual both of those things, but I really do not think that is what keeps people around year after year. It is all the other benefits that yield from Jiu-Jitsu that keep people coming back. In reality, I am in the business ....

  • Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 1: Self-Defense Perspective)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 1: Self-Defense Perspective) By Ted Chittenden 1/27/2022 I have practiced martial arts for most of my life. I have studied various types of martial arts over the decades, and one question I often receive is why Jiu-Jitsu? The short answer is because it works. However, the term “works” can be a bit more complex and it extends far beyond human combat. Part 1: Self-defense perspectives. From a combative/self-defense perspective, I am more inclined to favor arts that have more emphasis on grappling versus striking, especially regarding self-defense. Those that know me, might think this to be hypocritical on my part; questions ....
