Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered to be one of the most effective forms of self-defense. It is predominantly a ground fighting art where the strategy is to avoid punches and kicks while attempting to clinch your opponent and take the fight to the ground. On the ground striking techniques are weakened and you are able to apply jiu-jitsu techniques to submit your opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques are based on leverage, making it possible for the practitioner to beat a stronger and heavier opponent. In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you can apply submission techniques whether you are on the top or on the bottom of your opponent making it one of the most effective forms of self-defense.
