What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Many of the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) are centered around the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and vying for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless. To control and overcome greater size, strength and aggression with lesser size and strength is the keynote of the art. This is done by utilizing superior leverage, grip and position upon your opponent. Students of the art gain a deep understanding of the workings and limits of the human body. This knowledge can be used to subdue and control an opponent with whatever level of severity the student chooses. The path to this knowledge is physically and mentally demanding. Students benefit from greatly increased physical fitness, problem-solving ability, self-knowledge of their body and mind and the many social benefits of working within a large group of like-minded fellow students as you learn and have fun together.
