My son has done 5 classes so far and is loving every second of them. He has adhd and the instructors knew it going in, they've all been very nice and very patient with my son, making sure he understands what is expected of him. I fully trust that he will learn a lot from his experience here.

Amazing place! The instructors and even the other students are great. The facility is super nice, clean and really big. Can't say enough good things. No matter your age, fitness level or goals, it's a fantastic place to learn Brazilian jiu Jitsu, striking arts, self defense, and most importantly make new friends.

My wife Mary and I have been doing the Fitness Kick-Boxing at Tai-Kai for 5 years now! And we both love it, it has put me in the best shape of my life and I am 73 years young because of it! Pat yourself on the back Ken, your school is worth it! Sheena and Mike Bidwell Fitness Kick-Boxing classes are without a doubt the best! What is neat about them is they teach us the proper technique. This is very important, becasue if you learn how to do it right your workout improves ten fold.

I’ve trained all over the world and Tai Kai is one of the best places I’ve trained, hands down. The facility is spectacular, they have a bunch of really great teachers and the student body is fun and welcoming. I love this place!

Tai Kai is so much more than a place to work out and get in shape. Sure, Tai Kai offers excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and other classes... and it’s filled with so many knowledgeable teachers and instructors. But more than that, it’s a family, a home, a place to find encouragement and a place to find acceptance. I’m so happy to have found this place, trying my first class was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My kids started training jiu jitsu here earlier this year, and after watching them train and peeking in at the adult jiu jitsu classes, I decided to try it out, too. Best decision I ever made! The instructors are phenomenal in both the kids’ and adult classes, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I’ve met several incredible people while training here and love coming in to learn and get in better shape. If anyone is intimidated by jiu jitsu (or really, any of the other martial arts classes offered at Tai Kai) this place will set you at ease with a comfortable environment and training partners who are supportive and want you to do your best!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: The Best Workout You’ve Yet To Try

 

The world is filled with feel-good stories about how people have transformed their bodies – and their lives – by starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).

To anyone who has ever practiced BJJ before, this is unsurprising.

Each BJJ class is packed with various techniques, exercises, and even some ‘live’ drilling and sparring. All of that might sound like an intense workout. It might also seem too difficult. However, with the support of world-class instructors and the support of experienced practitioners around you, not only will you begin shredding weight, but you will become more confident and improve in many other ways as well.

See, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was not invented as a way to lose weight. Shredding kilograms is not even a priority when you are in class. It is just not about that. Instead, losing weight is a byproduct of what is a fun-filled martial art that will help you improve your physical appearance, ability, and your overall health.

 

With confidence, we can say that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a brilliant way to lose weight.

It is not uncommon for overweight students to lose 10-20kg in their first six months of training BJJ.

The best part about BJJ is that you can do it in moderation. You are not thrown into anything too extreme or intense – ever. It is an entirely different activity and experience to cardiovascular exercises such as running, riding a bike, or swimming.

You should not begin with 100% intensity and never look back. It is not recommended, by any means. Instead, you should start at a pace that is comfortable to you and pick up the level of intensity as your body acclimatizes.

BJJ has a tremendous effect on your lifestyle.

That is not to say that the first time you step onto the mats is going to change your life forever, but it might.

If you enjoy training BJJ and are already experiencing the weight loss benefits while in class, that is just the first step of what could become a dramatic transformation. It might take you a week or two to become ingrained in BJJ. When you do, you will begin to look for ways to improve. One of those ways, of course, is to improve your physical ability.

So, more often than not, BJJ has a significant effect on the way people approach their diet and lifestyle.

If you want to get more from your body, you need to give it the correct fuel. You will begin to reconsider those poor food choices and start to appreciate the healthier options.

Wanting to be as good as you can be at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will lead you to improve your overall lifestyle.

However, what’s to say that you will care this much about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is fun, and that is why it is a great way to lose weight

Yes, anyone can go for a run outside every morning, and that will certainly help you lose weight, but is it enjoyable?

To some people it is, but to most people it is uninspiring.

By starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you will begin on a journey surrounded by new people and a community of students who are all looking to achieve similar outcomes.

The community feeling will keep you coming back, as well as the desire to improve your ability as a martial artist. You do not need expensive tools or equipment to start Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you only need a uniform and the ability to get yourself to class.

You will not only improve your body, but you will test your mind as well. The classes will develop your critical thinking, social and professional networks, and you will begin to feel more confident. You will also learn an essential form of self-defense.

If you are overweight and have been considering ways to get yourself into shape, look no further.

The best time to start Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is now.
