Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is martial, combat sport and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting (Ne-Waza) fundamentals that were taught to Carlos Gracie by master Judoka Mitsuyo Maeda (Waseda University Judo). Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu eventually cam to be its own art through the experimentations, practices and adaptations from the Judo knowledge of Carlos Gracie and Helio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge onto their family.

BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground and most notibly applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grapplig tournaments (gi and no-gi) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition or self defense.
