What Is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
BrazilianJiu-Jitsu is a self defense Martial Art and combat sport that teaches a smaller weaker person how to defend themselves against a stronger larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique.
The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified Judo and traditional Japanese Jujutsu to create the art. At it’s core, BJJ is a self-defense Martial Art, over the years it has developed into a combat sport. With takedowns and throws used to take your opponent to the ground with the goal of gaining a controlling position where one can apply the style’s numerous chokes, holds, and joint locks to submit your opponent, Jiu-Jitsu is the ultimate Grappling Art.
