Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

When most people think about martial arts, an image of a highly-trained sensei who can dispatch numerous attackers using an array of punches and kicks likely comes to mind. While learning punches and kicks are certainly valuable skills, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) practitioners believe that proper leverage, positioning and technique on the ground are equally, if not more, important in a real-life confrontation.

A smaller person trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can defeat a larger adversary using distance management, leverage and a number of submissions that do not require a great deal of strength. First developed in Japan and later popularized by the Gracie family in Brazil, BJJ spread throughout the world starting in the mid-1990’s. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has proven its effectiveness in various fighting formats such as vale tudo, MMA and grappling competitions.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is primarily a grappling martial art with techniques and strategies rooted in the science of body mechanics. A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner will attempt to bring his or her opponent to the ground via a variety of different takedowns, trips or throws and then obtain a dominant position. Once in this dominant position, the BJJ practitioner can choose from a variety of joint locks, chokes and strikes with which to subdue the attacker. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also teaches one the understanding of body control, leverage and, more importantly, proper defense in all positions.

BJJ is an amazing workout, both physical and mentally. Physically, this art is very demanding and will result in building overall strength, increased cardiovascular conditioning and flexibility. Mentally, this art teaches you practical techniques that work against resisting opponents, which result in building your confidence. If you and your opponent are of equal size and strength, you will have to resort to outthinking your opponent to gain an advantage. BJJ offers the tools and strategies to minimize or nullify any strength disparities.

As with any endeavor, BJJ requires patience, determination and repetition to learn and master. Previous experience in other grappling arts is helpful, but is not a requirement for training. Students will quickly realize there are no secret techniques, easy solutions or shortcuts, just hard work and dedication. Only through hours of repetition, refinement and live sparring can the student retain the information and master the techniques and strategies of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
