What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art form that focuses on grappling techniques to influence an actively resisting opponent and bring them to submission. It is an excellent, effective form of exercise for both body and mind.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is based on the fundamental technique of taking your opponent to the ground. From there, you can strive for dominant control positions to take away their ability to harm you. This method of fighting is generally considered easier than staying in a standing position.

The key to success in this sport is to control and overcome greater size, strength, and aggression with lesser size and strength. This is achieved by utilizing superior leverage, grip, and position against one’s opponent. Through studying this sport, students gain a deep understanding of the workings and limits of the human body.

Acquiring this kind of knowledge is a taxing process both mentally and physically, but with it comes the power to subdue or dominate an adversary depending on how you wish to use it.
