What Is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) originated in Brazil and is widely considered to be one of the best forms of martial arts in the world. It is often said that if you are physically small or petite, but have mastered BJJ, then you can fight a person double your size. BJJ is based on the technique that immobilizes the opponent. It teaches joint locks, chokeholds, and the art to beat an opponent having more physical prowess. BJJ is considered to have the best self-defense techniques in the world.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and self-defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. “Jiu” translates to gentle or yielding and “Jitsu” translates to art or technique. Thus Jiu Jitsu is often referred to as the “Gentle Art”.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) emphasizes taking the opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques such as locks, holds, submissions to neutralize the opponent. The advantage of fighting from the ground is that an opponent with superior reach and more powerful striking is often negated when fighting on the ground, which is why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an ideal art for smaller and less powerful people.
