Tips to Get Friends & Family to Try BJJ
As 2023 comes to a close, we look upon the coming new year with a list of things we hope to accomplish in the following year. For many of us who live and breath jiu-jitsu, one of the things on that list is getting more friends and family to try Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Odds are, it's not the first time it's been on that list. Or, if it has never been on the list, it won't be the first time that you've tried... and largely failed in your endeavor.
But we keep trying, because we know the life changing and life saving benefits of the gentle art. This year will be the year that you finally succeed, bringing the joy of BJJ to those close to your heart. Why? Because we're here to help.
Here are four things to keep in mind when you're trying to get your friends and family to try BJJ for the first time:
