Most Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners train for hobby purposes. It’s quite often that people assume that Jiu-Jitsu gyms are full of young competitors, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Jiu-Jitsu really is for everyone that wants to do it.

Don’t let being out of shape be a reason not to try it.

Don’t let not being athletic, strong, fast or young be a reason not to try it.

While we are home to competitors that compete at the highest level in the world we are also home to hobbyist, self defense pursuits, those looking for exercise, and many others!

Whatever your reason is for learning Jiu-Jitsu may be, it is the right reason for you!


There’s an old saying, that the Journey of a thousand miles begins with a  single step. We preach this motto every which way we can, letting everyone know that we understand what it’s like to be a beginner that knows nothing at all. Take that first step, the journey is a great one!

Don’t let not training be a regret you have later in life! The best time to start training is today!

See you guys on the mat here at Cedar Hill Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
