Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport, grappling tournaments and Mixed Martial Arts Competition (MMA) or self-defense. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is centered around the skill of taking and opponent down to the ground an wrestling for dominant control positions for 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 sport.
This is done by utilizing superior leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. This knowledge can be used to subdue and control an opponent with grips and dominant positions. The path to this knowledge is physically and mentally demanding. Students benefit greatly from increased physical fitness, problem-solving ability, self-knowledge of their body and mind. Also experience the many social benefits of working within a large group of like-minded fellow students as you learn and have fun together.
