Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. The aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to control and subdue larger and stronger opponents through the use of superior techniques, leverage and body mechanics. With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries that can occur in martial arts focused on punching and kicking.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been called “Human Chess,” as it becomes a complicated mental and physical game at advanced levels. The martial art provides the constant challenge of learning new skills, with endless techniques, movements, and submissions to practice and perfect.
Regardless of size, gender, strength or physical limitations, the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be modified and practiced by anyone. Please fill out our contact form below to learn more about True Believer Jiu Jitsu and how we can help you accomplish your goals.
