Keywords:jiu-jitsu, dynamics, playful, military
The present work aimed to investigate whether the playful practice is an auxiliary tool in teaching jiu-jitsu in a military environment. It was a qualitative case study, as it followed the action research model. Thirteen Jiu-Jitsu teachers with at least five years of experience teaching Jiu-Jitsu in military environments were interviewed. After applying a semi-structured questionnaire, which was analysed according to the technique of Bardin, it was possible to conclude that playful practice is a helpful tool in teaching jiu-jitsu in a military environment, as it promotes an environment of positive and integrative well-being, establishing a more direct and closer communication between teacher and student during class.
