JIU JITSU IS CALLED THE “GENTLE ART” BECAUSE IT DOESN’T TAKE BRUTE STRENGTH OR SIZE TO DO IT OR BE GOOD AT IT. WE’D LIKE TO THINK THAT JESUS HIMSELF WOULD’VE CHOSE JIU-JITSU BECAUSE IT INVOLVES LOTS OF LOVING HUGS. SO WHAT BETTER MARTIAL ART FORM TO USE FOR BUILDING THE SPIRITUAL RESILIENCY AND FITNESS OF OUR BETHEL FAMILY. ASIDE FROM THE EFFECTIVENESS OF JIU-JITSU AS A FORM OF SELF-DEFENSE, IT BRINGS A SENSE OF BELONGING TO SOMETHING, A “PACK” OR “TEAM” AS WE REFER TO IT. IT CREATES STRONG RELATIONSHIPS AND GIVES MEMBERS ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO DO LIFE TOGETHER. IT BREEDS UNITY AND COMRADERY WHICH OUR MEMBERS LOVE AND CHERISH HERE AT BETHEL AND IT IS WOVEN IN THE FOUNDATION OF THIS CHURCH ONE MEMBER AT A TIME, DAY AFTER DAY. 

 

THERE ARE MANY BENEFITS IN PRACTICING JIU-JITSU TO INCLUDE INCREASING STRENGTH, BALANCE, STAMINA, FLEXIBILITY, DISCIPLINE, REDUCING STRESS, WEIGHT LOSS, AND INCREASING FOCUS. OUR ADULT JIU-JITSU MEMBERS GAIN CONFIDENCE AND HUMILITY, AND AN INCREASED SELF-ESTEEM AS WELL. THEY ARE EQUIPPED WITH INVALUABLE TOOLS TO FACE THE ADVERSITY AND CHALLENGES IN LIFE THAT OCCUR AND ANOTHER TOOL IN THEIR TOOLBOX FOR THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE WE ENDURE IN SOCIETY EACH AND EVERY DAY.

THROUGH  JESUS & JIU-JITSU, OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH PLAN IS THAT WE CAN HELP THESE

“AT-RISK” YOUTH LEARN CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS, ANTI-BULLYING FUNDAMENTALS, HOW TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH BEING UNCOMFORTABLE, DISCIPLINE, RESPECT, MORALS, VALUES, COMRADERY, AND TEAMWORK.

 

FOR OUR YOUTH THAT ARE TAUGHT THE MAJORITY OF THESE VALUES AT HOME, WE CAN STRENGTHEN THAT FOUNDATION AND THEIR SPIRIT, AND FILL IN THE GAPS WHERE NECESSARY. MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE CAN GIVE THEM A FOUNDATION IN F.A.I.T.H., AND GUIDELINES TO HELP THEM LIVE THEIR DAILY LIFE BY. WE ARE HERE TO PARTNER WITH PARENTS, NOT REPLACE THEM. MOST PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW  SPORTS  CORRELATE TO LIFE. THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT ARTS, LIKE JIU-JITSU, ARE ABOUT MORE THAN JUST SELF-DEFENSE. THEY GAIN COURAGE,

SELF-ESTEEM, SELF-RESPECT, CONFIDENCE, DISCIPLINE, AND LEADERSHIP TO NAME A FEW.

COMBINING JIU-JITSU WITH OUR FUNDAMENTALS OF

F.A.I.T.H.  ( FORGIVENESS,  ACCOUNTABILITY,  INTEGRITY,  TRUST,  HONOR)

 

AND

T.A.P.P. ( TRAINING, ACCOUNTABILITY, PERSEVERANCE, PURPOSE)

 

CAN AND WILL PREPARE OUR YOUTH TO BE ABLE TO FACE ANY ADVERSITY IN LIFE THAT COMES AT THEM. BECAUSE, AS IS OUR PHILOSOPHY IN OUR ADULT PROGRAM TO HEAL THE SPIRIT, THE MIND, AND THEN THE BODY; IN OUR YOUTH PROGRAM OUR PHILOSOPHY IS TO GROW THEIR SPIRIT, ENRICH THEIR MINDS, AND STRENGTHEN THEIR BODIES THROUGH F.A.I.T.H.
