Called Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) because it was developed and refined in Brazil, BJJ evolved from Judo techniques and is similar to Japanese Jiu Jitsu, but it focuses on grappling exclusively by teaching “ground fighting.” No weapons are used, and there is no hitting.


In ground fighting, a person has more leverage than fighting standing up.  A smaller person can more easily get the advantage over a larger person.  It brings the fight to the ground, where pressure, chokes, and locks allow you to take control and overpower your opponent.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was instrumental in the formation of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), beginning in Brazil as events called “Vale Tudo” during the 1920s.  BJJ is one of four grappling techniques used in MMA matches still today.


The ability to participate in this sport is not restricted by sex, age, or size.  It can bring a feeling of confidence and security to your life.  Also referred to as the “gentle art,” it uses not only physical aspects but mental as well.
