What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, also known as BJJ is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting, using joint locks and chokes to force an opponent to submit or tap. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu came to prominence under the Gracie family when Royce Gracie effectively used Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to win multiple UFC Championships and even defeat larger opponents who were practicing other styles!
Who should learn BJJ?
If you are smaller in stature but wish to learn a martial to overcome larger opponents, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for you! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique and taking the fight to the ground and then applying joint locks or chokes to defeat the opponent.
Where are the BJJ lessons conducted?
