What is BJJ?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling martial art that was modified from the classical Jujitsu of old Japan. The family responsible for this revolutionary martial arts are the Gracies. The underlying tactical strategy of Brazilian jiu-Jitsu is the intelligent and skillful use of grappling techniques to establish positional control, manipulation joints with the use of leverage and precise applications of chokes to overcome brute strength and aggression. Through the empirical evidence of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) competitions Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques where used by smaller and weaker competitor to defeat stronger aggressive opponents. This form of martial art made it possible for a smaller person to defend themselves and defeat a bigger opponent. This is why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered one the best forms of martial arts for self-defense. 

Practicing Brazilian Jiu – Jitsu will allow members to improve functional strength, cardiovascular conditioning and self confidence gained through the progressive improvements made by regular training and drilling with a resisting opponent. Members will be also able to track their progression with the traditional BJJ belt system.
