Brazilian jiu-jitsu, also called The Gentle Art, is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Originated in Japan and later developed by Gracie Family from Brazil, BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts competition or as self-defense. Brazilian jiu-jitsu: it is not solely a martial art: it is also a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way of life.Learn More
