Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fighting art, developed from traditional Jiu-Jitsu, by the Gracie family of Brazil. Even though Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu contains standup techniques for winning a fight, it is famous for its devastating ground fighting techniques. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was specifically developed to enable a smaller person to defeat a larger person via sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations is the foundation for this fun and challenging martial art.
