Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a Martial Art and combat sport that focuses on ground fighting.

The goal is to end a match by gaining a dominant position from which to apply a submission hold. This system developed from Judo, and includes some techniques from Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and has a focus on ne-waza (ground technique). BJJ enables a smaller, weaker individual to use leverage and technique to defend themselves against a larger opponent. BJJ can be trained for self-defense and sport grappling tournaments.
