BJJ / BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a relatively young martial art, having been created about a hundred years ago. Focusing on grappling and ground fighting, it relies on the principles of leverage and proper technique to facilitate the practitioner to obtain dominant control on the ground, where it provides the practitioner a huge arsenal of tools to resolve conflict in the form submission holds.
BJJ has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). It was made famous by the Gracie Family, mainly by Royce Gracie in the early UFC’s. Today, every elite level MMA athlete practises BJJ in some form. However, it has it’s roots in self-defence and has also developed into a sport that is unique in its way of offering a competitive possibility to pretty much anybody, regardless of age, gender and skill level.
