At 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Orange Park, we believe that jiu-jitsu is for everyone. Regardless of age, fitness level, injuries, or physical limitations, our inclusive and supportive environment ensures that everyone can benefit from the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Here’s why training with us, even if you have physical challenges, can be a rewarding and transformative experience.

The Inclusive Nature of Jiu Jitsu

Why It Matters:

Jiu-jitsu is a versatile martial art that can be adapted to suit various body types and physical conditions. It emphasizes leverage, technique, and strategy over brute strength, making it accessible to people with different abilities.

What We Offer:

• Tailored Training: Our experienced instructors work with you to modify techniques and create personalized training plans that accommodate your specific needs.

• Low-Impact Options: We focus on drills and movements that minimize stress on joints and areas prone to injury, ensuring you can train safely.

• Gradual Progression: You can progress at your own pace, without the pressure to perform beyond your physical capabilities.

Benefits of Training Despite Physical Limitations

Physical Health:

• Improved Mobility: Gentle stretching and movement drills can enhance flexibility and joint health.

• Strength and Conditioning: Even modified exercises help in building strength and improving overall fitness.

• Pain Management: Regular, controlled movement can aid in pain management and injury rehabilitation.

Mental Well-being:

• Stress Relief: The focus required in jiu-jitsu practice can serve as a mental escape from daily stresses.

• Confidence Boost: Learning new skills and achieving personal milestones can significantly boost your self-esteem.

• Community Support: Being part of a supportive community can improve your overall mental health and sense of belonging.

Training Without Sparring or Competition

Why It Matters:

At 10th Planet Orange Park, we understand that sparring and competition may not be suitable or appealing for everyone, especially those with physical limitations. That’s why these aspects are entirely optional.

What We Offer:

• Technique Drills: Focus on learning and perfecting techniques in a controlled, non-competitive setting.

• Flow Rolling: Engage in light, cooperative rolling sessions that prioritize movement and technique over resistance.

• Solo Drills: Practice movements, escapes, and transitions on your own or with minimal partner interaction to build muscle memory and improve your skill set.

Our Commitment to Your Safety and Comfort

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. We are committed to providing a training environment where everyone feels welcome and supported.
