BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Carlos-And-Helio-Gracie_edited.jpg

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, self-defense system and combat sport, developed from Kodokan Judo by the legendary Gracie family (pictured below, with Mauricio top right) in the early to mid 20th century in Brazil. 

 

Despite being one of the essential 'Three Pillars' of the modern MMA athlete's skill-set (alongside striking & wrestling), BJJ promotes unique principles that allow a smaller, weaker individual to utilize leverage-based techniques to overcome bigger, stronger, more aggressive opponents.

"Jiu Jitsu can be frustrating, heart-breaking and just down right hard. If you stop, even for a short time, starting again can be painful and sometimes ego stops people from coming back. But if you push through and keep going, progress comes and it is so worth it. Jiu Jitsu is not for everyone, but it is for you, no doubt."
