One look around the mats at American Top Team Fort Lauderdale and you will see many police officers, firefighters, first responders and teachers among our members. ATT FTL has great appreciation for the services they provide and many of them find value in the classes we provide as well.
Many police officers train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because the ability to subdue, control and immobilize an opponent without hurting them is a crucial skill in their line of work. In fact, a bill was recently introduced in the state of Michigan that would require all law enforcement officers to be certifiably trained in the “rank of blue belt or higher in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu”. This same life-saving skill of being able to neutralize an attacker without harming them is useful for security guards, bouncers, and all varieties of first responders who routinely encounter unpredictable situations at work.
People that work in high stress occupations including teachers also find value in the stress-relief provided by the classes we offer. This could be actual martial arts classes or cardio kickboxing and extreme fitness classes. Releasing that built-up stress at the end of a hectic workday is one of the best ways to help you rest easy at night. It’s also more important than ever to get in shape through regular exercise because it supports a healthy immune system.
Another valuable skill that martial arts teaches you is the ability to stay calm under pressure. It goes without saying how important this can be for police officers, firefighters and all varieties of first responders. The ability to remain calm and make intelligent decisions while being under pressure is a skill that becomes second nature for people who regularly train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing or muay thai.
We also offer special discounts for people in these professions, so make sure you stop by to check out the gym and let us show you what we have to offer. We can’t wait to see you!
