The practice of Luta Livre allows the development of many physical qualities such as flexibility, strength, speed, coordination, balance, and cardiorespiratory endurance.
It has been estimated that one hour of practice will spend 650kcal on average, which makes it a sports activity that contributes to the body weight control of practitioners. It is a sport that promotes the development of social ties, stress relief and an increase of self-confidence.
It is a combat sport whose traumatology is relatively modest compared to other sports of the same type, given the absence of strikes and the low frequency of takedowns.
Finally, it is a sport in which, by the diversity and the richness of the techniques, can be suitable to practitioners of different ages and physical condition; therefore, Luta Livre can also claim to be practiced like a "Health-oriented" sport.
