Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the most fascinating and fastest growing martial arts in the world today. It requires skill and efficiency, not brute strength, and is built on the principle that a smaller and weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger and stronger person using leverage and technique. Unlike the striking arts, Jiu Jitsu is predominantly a ground fighting art in which an opponent is put to the ground and manipulated with techniques and submission holds involving joint locks and chokes but is also about how to get back on your feet if taken to the ground.
Jiu Jitsu is also a complementary art to other martial arts in many situations where people grab each other or fall to the ground. The effectiveness and increasing popularity of Jiu Jitsu has found its way in law enforcement training programmes, anti-bullying programmes and women self defence particularly female victims of domestic violence.
BJJ is often referred to as the ‘Kinetic Chess’ of martial arts because of the strategy to beat your opponent.
