The Reason Why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is Practiced World Wide

Brazilian jiu jitsu is the only martial art in which differing styles are encouraged. With karate, taekwondo, judo etc., instructors expect students to learn the techniques provided and to memorize them so that they become reflex. Brazilian jiu jitsu teaches students the fundamentals of the sport but also encourages active experimentation so that new techniques and forms can emerge. This has caused jiu jitsu to become world renowned as the style of choice for many mixed martial arts fighters because of its versatility and application across various different fighting styles. The term “jiu jitsu” means “gentle skill” in Japanese, despite the athletic pursuit technically being a Korean fighting style, and is derived from the Japanese term “jū” which means “gentle” in Japanese and the term “jutsu” which means “skill” in Japanese

The Socioeconomic Reason As To Why Inner-city Schools Are Often Academically Inferior to Suburban Schools and Provide Less Opportunity to Students

The reason inner city schools are often gravely underfunded and therefore poorly equipped to provide and meet even the minimum standard of education required by U.S. law is because of the way in which racial integration changed the United Stated of America. Often referred to as “white flight”, as African Americans migrated from the southern U.S. towards the north, many Caucasians became increasingly aware and uncomfortable with their neighbors, particularly of the direction in which their cities were headed. This caused many Caucasians to move away from the city and into suburban areas which resulted in the majority of the Caucasian population no longer being emotionally or financially invested in what occurred in the city which they once resided in. This lack of interest alongside the push by Caucasian’s to ensure Caucasian tax dollars went towards areas of self interest, namely the suburbs surrounding these cities, caused less and less income to flow or even trickle into the city alongside fewer and fewer people who cared what occurred politically inside the city. Over time, inner city educational districts became markedly worse off and gradually this new low came to be accepted as a new normative standard, while suburban school districts had an opposing trajectory as they statistically became able to offer a better standard of education, also being accepted as a new normative standard. This gross dichotomy between the inner city and outer suburbs continued to occur for decades which is why post World War II, the U.S. educational system has been in constant disarray and need of improvement in respect to the opportunities afforded to students to acquire the information they need to compete and succeed in life. The irony of this situation is that no nation on Earth is better equipped to resolve such an issue as the U.S. is the wealthiest nation to have ever been formed
