Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling ones opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit. It prides itself in being known as the "gentle art", allowing a smaller weaker person to use leverage and submissions (chokes, locks) to defend him/herself against a bigger opponent.
In addition to being a great workout BJJ is one of the most potent, real life fighting systems on the planet. Because of the countless techniques and concepts, a virtual game of human chess is created sharpening the mind. BJJ builds character and promotes continuous self- improvement. Best of all because it is an art that is designed for a smaller, weaker practitioner to subdue much larger and stronger opponents, virtually anyone of any size, age or sex can practice BJJ.
