Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting as a self defense. BJJ is a martial art that is divided into 4 styles:

1. Self-Defense

2. Striking

3. Throws

4. Ground fighting

The combination of these 4 styles provides the most complete self-defense system in the world.  Jiu-Jitsu has recently become more popular and is noted to be the fastest growing martial art in the United States. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu martial artists are able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent.

 

The concept of BJJ is that smaller people who are not as strong can defend themselves against a larger more stronger opponent. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial artists are able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent.
