Children, men and women learn to be more aware of your surroundings to defend against attackers. You learn how to concentrate and focus during stressful situations. Learn critical techniques to help defend yourself and others.
Learn to take your time, ENJOY THE PROCESS. Going faster won't make you better, being better will make you faster. Drilling is one of those aspects. It is said "don't fear the man who does 1,000 techniques 1 time, fear the man who does 1 technique 1,000 times"
"You lose the fear of expressing yourself, you start walking with your head held high. There's no place you can't go, there's no goal you can't achieve, since you are a Jiu-Jitsu person."
~ Master Renzo Gracie
