BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling with particular emphasis on ground fighting.


Jiu-jitsu, or “gentle art”, teaches an individual to overcome a challenger, no matter his or her size. Brazilian jiu-jitsu accomplishes this by transitioning the fight to the ground where practitioners employ proper technique and leverage one's own strength to defeat an opponent.
