What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Distinctives of BJJ

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art form that focuses on ground fighting. As such, it teaches takedowns, ground control and submissions - that is, subduing an opponent through either holds that cut off the opponent's air supply, or joint locks.

- Your success in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not based on size, strength, or athleticism. In fact, we assume your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger, and more athletic than you. Instead, it is based on leverage and applying proper technique.
- You win by wearing your opponent out. You learn the most efficient ways to use your energy. You learn to conserve your energy so that when it is the right time to use it, you have energy and your opponent has exhausted his.
- Each move is focused, strategic, and timed correctly. You develop self-control to resist your impulses and restrain yourself from acting, and to watch and wait it out until the right time. It is a chess game.
- You learn how to gain mastery of your opponent, the situation, and yourself.
