Looking to learn Jiu Jitsu? What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, often referred to as BJJ, is a martial art and combat sport that primarily focuses on ground fighting and submission holds. It originated from Kodokan Judo, which was introduced to Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda, a judoka and one of Judo's early pioneers. Carlos Gracie, one of Maeda's students, further developed and refined the techniques, eventually passing down the knowledge to his family, who continued to promote and innovate Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Unlike other martial arts, BJJ emphasizes technique, leverage, and timing over raw strength and size. Practitioners learn how to defend themselves against larger opponents by using efficient grappling techniques, joint locks, and chokeholds. Through continuous practice, students develop physical fitness, mental discipline, and problem-solving skills.
