About Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling on the ground. BJJ is unique in that its ethos is not about striking and power, but technique and strategy, using superior positioning and leverage to overcome brute strength. This makes BJJ uniquely effective for all body types and conducive to long term practice, physical wellness, and longevity.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique and leverage. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi), mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, or self-defense.
