Abstract
The purpose of this study was to explore personal and social benefits associated with participation in Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ). Sixteen participants (2 head instructors and 14 athletes; M age = 33.8 years, M duration of involvement in BJJ = 5.5 years) participated in individual semi-structured interviews. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and subjected to qualitative data analysis. Results revealed participants reported a broad variety of benefits arising from their participation in BJJ. Personal benefits were self-confidence, analytical thinking, perseverance, stress relief, and physical health. Social benefits were respect and tolerance for others and community environment. Results revealed that the benefits were obtained through the adoption of traditional and modern types of guidance (i.e., teaching). Further, the results identified specific ways the athletes believe these outcomes transferred to their lives away from the sport.
