Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

What is BJJ?

Brazilian Jui-Jitsu (BJJ) is the fasted growing martial art in the world right now. It is a martial art that is focused on positional control, and submissions rather than striking / kicking.

It is safe to say that a real fight will eventually end up on the ground, one way or another. BJJ is favoured by it’s practitioners due to the fact that even a lower belt BJJ player can dominate a larger untrained opponent on the ground.

Of course it is more complex than that, but the idea is that a smaller person with training would be able to defend against and dominate a larger attacker.

The other side to BJJ is that it is like a game of chess, but with constantly moving parts and problems to solve, kind of like rock climbing on a moving wall.

Brazilan Jiu-Jitsu is an evolution of Judo, developed by the Gracie Brothers.
