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. 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.
