What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses predominantly on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to control or force an opponent to submit.

The system developed from a modified version of pre-World War II Judo including some techniques from Japanese Jujitsu 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.

With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking.

BJJ can be trained for general overall fitness, self-defense, grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, such as the Ultimate Fighting Championships.

The great aspect of BJJ is that nobody is ever “too old” or “too young” to learn it. You could be a beginner or an experienced grappler but regardless, there will always be something new to try and learn.

Get Started!

Before you come to your first class, you’ll need to figure out what to wear. You usually don’t need to own a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi for your first class. T-shirts, board shorts and sweat pants are all fine. You can also wear a gi or uniform from another martial art.
