Jiu Jitsu Gyms are pretty common, but finding a truly good gym with a reputation to match, in the McKinney area, is extremely hard. Periodically, people misspell jiu jitsu. Common misspelling includes jiu jiu jitsu and jitsu jiu. Either way you spell it, it still refers to the martial art jiu jitsu. Aguilera Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Studio is the home to the best jiu jitsu gym near McKinney, as we have been told by our wonderful students. Located just west in Prosper, we have classes designed for all age groups that are scheduled to be accessible to even the toughest of busy lives.
What is Jiu Jitsu?
Jiu Jitsu is a traditional martial art from Japan. An art of defense using throws, strikes, and joint locks as defense maneuvers against a variety of different attacks. The modern approach, which our gym employs, teaches maneuvers adapted to take into account the possible self-defense situations found in the real world. McKinney is not like the rough places in the world, but bad people still exist and it’s good to know how to defend one’s self.
Self-defense Jiu Jitsu is just one side of the Jiu Jitsu coin. On the flip side, Jiu Jitsu is the sport version consisting of tournaments and academies focused on competition. Popularized in the United States by the Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has become the most visible and known version.
Even though Jiu Jitsu is not a secret mythical martial art passed down through the years by warriors, you will gain unbridled confidence, with a high level of humility. There is no way you can train in Jiu Jitsu and not be humbled. Yes, you gain the ability to put someone to sleep, but that level of skill requires the humbleness and confidence to know when to use it and most importantly we not to. Unlike the smooth and skill kicks of Karate and Tae Kwon Do, Jiu Jitsu teaches you ground level fundamentals. This is very important since 90% of fights end up on the ground. Don’t you want to be the one with the advantage if this happens?
