Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller and/or weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a larger, stronger, and heavier assailant by utilizing leverage and proper technique.
A BJJ practitioner takes the fight to the ground and can then apply joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.Contact Us
BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments. It can also be used in some self-defense situations and serves multiple purposes. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
Unlike other branches of original Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, such as judo, several important traits were passed on to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ is not only a martial art, but it is also a sport. It is a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people, and ultimately, a way of life.
While many martial art disciplines incorporate grappling here and there, when it comes to BJJ, grappling is at the core of all of your training. Not familiar with grappling? Here’s what you need to know – instead of utilizing weapons or striking, grappling is all about getting your opponent to concede through physical dominance. The rules and techniques of grappling vary depending on whether one is practicing Gi or No-Gi Jiu Jitsu, as well as whether it’s being done in a sport or self-defense style. When grappling in BJJ, you’ll spend the majority of your time fighting from the ground and will likely utilize many different types of chokes.
Made for the real world, BJJ is a form of self defense that every person should master. BJJ focuses on ground level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques. This makes Jiu Jitsu ideal when learning how to take on an opponent who may be larger than you, without necessarily having to hurt them.
With such a fast pace, you’ll be burning tons of calories while practicing Jiu Jitsu. While BJJ is likely to help you shed a few pounds, it’s going to make you a stronger athlete in every respect. Jiu Jitsu is known for increasing flexibility, building muscle mass, quickening reflexes, and improving coordination. If you’re a multi-sport athlete, Jiu Jitsu is about to become your best friend.
