Welcome to Mentality's website, where you will find information regarding:

  • research into evidence-based approaches to learning and benefiting from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu;
  • publications which help you to build your own curriculum and maintain motivation; and
  • the benefits of learning through meaningful connection in a supportive and welcoming community.
We aim to build, improve on, and provide evidence-based curriculum and training while also informing research, policy development, and service design for the use of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a driving factor to promote meaningful resilience, well-being, and success in other areas of life including relationships and career.

We also aim to address the high dropout rate in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and increase participation through:

  • social networking outside of the academy;
  • participation in competitions; and
  • setting achievement (SMART) goals.
