*Experience the healing effects of Jiu-Jitsu with Operation Compassionate Care’s BJJ for PTSD program.

The viability of the BJJ for PTSD stems from the fact it is a martial art and combat with many exercises. Whether occasional or regular, exercise plays a key role in relieving mental and physical stress levels. Exercise releases the natural painkillers of the body called endorphins accounting for its effectiveness in dealing with mental fitness and stress reduction. Moreover, BJJ is relatively cost-effective and consumes less time as compared to traditional remedies to PTSD such sessions of cognitive behavior therapy and antidepressant medication. Moreover, BJJ plays a critical role in replacement conditioning treatment by replacing bad behaviors with good ones. Since the martial art replaces the urge to take pills with training making it a more viable option for PSTD.

A new study by USF Health researchers is investigating a possible respite of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, as well as traditional exercise.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches self-defense against bigger aggressors by using leverage and proper technique to use their size against them.

Our Jiu-Jitsu program is currently in Southern California but we will be expanding soon.
