Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Grappling GI & NO GI
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu GI Class
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that emphasizes technique and leverage to enable a smaller, weaker person to defend themselves or another against a larger, stronger opponent.
BJJ involves taking the fight to the ground and using joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training includes sparring (known as "rolling" within the BJJ community) and live drilling to improve performance, especially in competition.
In addition to its use as a martial art, BJJ is also a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and character development, and a way of life.
It has its roots in the parent art of judo, which was developed in 1882 and distinguished from older Japanese jujutsu systems by its emphasis on technique.
