Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also known as BJJ is a grappling art that you must know if you ever find yourself in a self-defense situation or a fight. That’s because over 80% of all violent situations will end up on the ground. Popularized in America by the legendary Gracie family, BJJ concentrates on dominating your opponent by using specifically designed techniques to control your opponent through the use of angles, leverage, and superior body positioning. BJJ provides you with the tools to increase your chances of skillfully escaping dangerous situations with minimal damage… even if you are much smaller and weaker than your attacker! This style has been used countless times to end fights without actually hurting anyone. Aggressors are put to sleep by a choke or restrained long enough to wear them down. Sure, knockout punches can look cool in a pro MMA fight, but it can take years to develop the skill and strength necessary. And if you find yourself on the ground, much of that finely developed ability is thrown out the window! Of course, there are other reasons to train BJJ too. Many people love it for the intense, physical, stress-relieving workout it provides. Then there’s the improved balance, coordination, and self-confidence. But in addition to all of that, it’s incredibly fun and addictive. You will not only get in great shape and learn valuable practical skill… you will make friends from all walks of life and tap into a side of yourself you may not even know exists! The typical uniform for training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a kimono, also known as a gi. You can also train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without a kimono, which is known as No-Gi or Submission Grappling, which is most notably used in mixed martial arts, as seen in the UFC.
