What is Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
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.
BJJ can be used for self-defense as well as for a competitive sport. The art is designed to be a safer martial art because it does not rely on lethal force, making it ideal for competitive training too.
About Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend him or herself in combat. However, the secret of BJJ training is that while learning self-defense, the practitioner will also lose weight, release emotional stress, gain flexibility, build self-confidence, and form important and strong relationships with the other students and teachers at the academy. By training BJJ, the student will learn how to think through problems creatively and constructively both on and off the mat.
