What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was developed with the intention and spirit of overcoming size and strength with technique and leverage. Thus, efficiency and technical knowledge are emphasized over athleticism and strength. Using knowledge of body positioning, joint manipulation and chokeholds, BJJ pracitioners can disable and immobilize opponents without throwing a single strike.
