The first thing you might ask is, why even make the connection between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and guns?

Well, when we were talking about how BJJ levels the playing field, it reminded us of how guns also became a leveler. Before guns, if you were bigger and could swing a club harder, you were dominant. Guns came along and, for better or worse, made a weak person the equal of the strong.

But learning a martial art like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can also make the smaller person the equal of the strong, and it has a number of advantages over a firearm.

  1. Guns don’t get you exercise: Carrying a gun around gun is easy, but it’s not going to make you healthier or exercise your mind like Jiu-Jitsu will.
  2. You can’t drop your martial art: In a fight, your opponent can’t take your martial art and use it against you. If you drop your gun, your own defense can become your opponent’s offense.
  3. Take Jiu-Jitsu everywhere: You can’t take your gun everywhere, and that’s a good thing. But when it comes to defending yourself in school or beyond a metal detector, it’s important to remember that your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training can’t be confiscated.
  4. You don’t have to get a license: It’s a lot more easy and fun to get martial arts training than to fill out paperwork.
  5. You won’t accidentally go off: Martial arts are about body control. You ever heard of someone Jiu-Jitsu’ing themselves in the foot? We thought not.
  6. It’s a lot quieter than a gun, unless you’re really good at getting BJJ submissions from your opponent!
