On National Situational Awareness Day, we encourage everyone to take the time to learn about and practice situational awareness skills. Situational awareness is the ability to be aware of your surroundings and the people around you, and to be able to identify and respond to potential threats.
One of the best ways to improve your situational awareness skills is to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It is a highly effective form of self-defense, and it can also teach you how to be more aware of your surroundings and the people around you.
Here are just a few of the ways that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you improve your situational awareness:
