Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting as a self defense. Jiu-Jitsu has recently become more popular and is noted to be one of the fastest growing MMA sports in the United States. The concept of BJJ is that smaller people who are not as strong can defend themselves against a larger, stronger opponent. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial artists are able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent.

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Over the course of hundreds of years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has evolved as its own specific form of martial arts. Its roots can be traced back to Japan where it was primarily seen as a component of judo. As it made its way to Brazil in the early 1900’s, jiu-jitsu was embraced and promoted as its own unique brand of fighting.
By definition, jiu-jitsu means “the gentle art”, or “the yielding art”. Essentially, it is a martial art that focuses on grappling techniques reminiscent to wrestling and ground fighting. It utilizes positional strategies and LEVERAGE, and is built on the belief that, regardless of size or strength, anyone can defeat their opponent by applying proper TECHNIQUE.
