Why Jiu Jitsu Is Great For ADULTS

Hero Jiu Jitsu boosts confidence and strength through programs designed specifically for adults of all ages and skill levels. It’s much more than fighting, it’s a why of life. Many students find that jiu jitsu helps them deal with everyday stress and problem solving much better. We are in this to build positive examples on and off the mat.

Builds interpersonal communication skills

Without the distraction, we can shut out the outside world for a couple hours and exercise our minds and our bodies relieving stress and adding years to our lives

Practical

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches effective self-defense through escapes and holds, avoiding kicks or punches to reduce the risk of brain injuries.Even smaller or less strong person can confidently defend themselves against bigger opponents using jiu-jitsu techniques.

We're Family.

Having a supportive network of friends can be crucial, sometimes even life-saving. Feeling backed by a team of people who share your views offers a strong sense of safety and boosts confidence. Even shy and introverted individuals find comfort and a sense of belonging in such environments. Our "Vibe" is the most important thing to us, we take it very seriously. If someone doesn't fit in or can't control their "Ego" - we'll politely ask them to find another place to train.

Engages the brain.

Jiu-jitsu is like playing a physical version of chess, constantly thinking ahead and adapting your moves based on your opponent's actions.

Discipline.

Attend classes regularly to master new techniques each week, preparing for advancement and competitions. It will be hard, you'll be sore. You won't want to go some days.. But in life, those who do the hard things first and consistently will go farther.

My wife Melissa and I have been students of Hector Rosario for close to two years now and love the training, atmosphere, and people on the mats at Hero BJJ. The instruction is excellent and we've made a second family with the crew that we roll with each week. If you're interested in trying BJJ, I highly recommend it! We're both in our late 40's, so you're never to old to start!

We are so happy with our new gym, HERO. Our kids (4 & 6) have an absolute blast at every class and we love watching them learn and grow. The facility is super clean and comfortable to be at (especially when you’re there for hours at a time). The coaches truly care about each and every kid. We couldn’t be happier at HERO.

I highly recommend Hero Jiu Jitsu Academy. The instructors are top notch - they are not only knowledgeable about the sport, but also create a friendly and fun atmosphere. There is always music playing, there are fun theme nights, and while people all work really hard, there are also a lot of laughs on and off the mats. I love that there is a welcoming and supportive group of women at the gym, and that they offer a women's only class. That being said, I also always feel safe training with the male students here as well.

Hero jiu jitsu is like a second home for my children. My boys have been training with Coach Tony for 6 years and 3 years. He plays such an important role in their lives and has shaped them in so many ways. The confidence and perseverance that jiu jitsu has taught them shows in everything they do on and off the mat.

Hero jiu jitsu academy is not only a jiujitsu gym but a place of community. Over my time of training here I’ve never felt so welcomed. With helping hands everywhere you look, to people looking to give advice and pass down their special moves. Its just all around a great place to start the sport and it’s for a sure a place that will make you stick with it !

I've trained at a lot of spots over the years and Hero is my favorite by a long shot. Friendliest crew I've ever trained with and the most dynamic program I've ever seen. If you're a middle-aged guy like me that just wants to roll and work out or you want to be a serious competitor, they've got something for everyone.
