The viability of the BJJ for PTSD stems from the fact it is a martial art and combat with many exercises. Whether occasional or regular, exercise plays a key role in relieving mental and physical stress levels. Exercise releases the natural painkillers of the body called endorphins accounting for its effectiveness in dealing with mental fitness and stress reduction. Moreover, BJJ is relatively cost-effective and consumes less time as compared to traditional remedies to PTSD such sessions of cognitive behavior therapy and antidepressant medication. Moreover, BJJ plays a critical role in replacement conditioning treatment by replacing bad behaviors with good ones. Since the martial art replaces the urge to take pills with training making it a more viable option for PSTD.
