Brazilian Jiujitus (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling with particular emphasis on ground fighting. BJJ was developed from Japanese Judo ground fighting fundamentals, which were in turn formed from the Japanese Samurai art of Jiujitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu eventually came to be its own defined combat sport through the innovations, practices, and adaptation of its practitioners.
BJJ is founded on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ is taught to military and police across the world for its reality based no nonsense approach. BJJ is most commonly seen however in grappling sport tournaments and in the world of MMA such as the ever popular UFC.
Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling" within the BJJ community) and live drilling play a major role in training and the practitioner's development. BJJ is considered a martial art, a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and building character, and a way of life by many of the people who practice it.
In our Teens & Adults BJJ program our students are systematically taught the art of grappling through takedowns and submission / positional control techniques that share overlapping principles, allowing a beginner to competently apply the techniques under pressure at an accelerated rate! BJJ is not an easy martial art but nothing easy is worth having.
