What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (also known as BJJ and Jiu Jitsu) is a grappling martial art that teaches a person how to defend themself against another individual by using leverage and technique. It emphasizes getting an opponent to the ground in order to utilize positional control, ground fighting techniques, and submission holds involving joint-locks, chokeholds, and leverage.
Why Train Jiu Jitsu?
Everyone's personal reasons for training are often very different. Some like the physical aspect as a fun way to exercise without the feeling of a traditional workout, and others like the challenging nature of trying to master one's body and control it in ways most cannot. However, learning self defense is the main reason everyone starts training. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has something to offer for everyone and is a great way to test yourself and grow in a fun and safe environment.
