Checkmat Clark Core Values

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will teach you so many things about yourself, some of the core values include; discipline and respect, confidence through self-defense, develop friendships and socialize, improve body awareness and coordination and excitement of a positive hobby.

Weight-Loss and Getting in Shape

One of the first differences you will notice after you begin training is how easy it is to lose weight and keep it off. Jiu jitsu works every muscle in your body so you will notice a difference almost immediately.

Self-Defense

The first time you step on the mat at a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy you will immediately be aware of how little the average person knows about basic self-defense and the ineffectiveness of our basic instincts.

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

As you continue your journey along the jiu jitsu path, your mind will begin to open as you better understand both techniques and your own body. Like any sport, technique and strategy are keys to success – and Brazilian jiu jitsu is not any different.

Having Fun!

The best part of training in Brazilian jiu jitsu is how much fun the martial art is! There are numerous pictures of people 70, 80, 90 years old that still come in to train.
