What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, is a martial art for men and women that focuses on grappling and ground defense. Developed from Japanese Judo/Jiu-Jitsu, it migrated to Brazil where it evolved into the art it is today. Using leverage, and timing, it is masterful at defeating an opponent that has you pinned on the ground. 

Taking the martial arts scene by storm with it's effectiveness and incredible fitness results, it has become extremely popular throughout the world. BJJ teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger attacker through technique, timing, and proper use of physics.
