Originating in Brazil, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a cutting edge martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit. The system developed from a modified version of pre-World War II Judo including some techniques from Japanese Jujutsu, which came via those techniques being incorporated into Kodokan Judo, and with a focus on ne-waza (ground technique). It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.

BJJ is among the most effective fighting, competitive, and conditioning disciplines available today. The combat sport aspect has been made famous by fighters such as the Gracie Family, Marco Ruas, and Ken Shamrock. Training sessions are rigorous and typically last a couple of hours, being split into stamina building, technique development, and skill acquisition through a large amount of drilling and sparring.
