ABOUT BJJ

THERE IS NO LOSING, YOU
EITHER WIN OR YOU LEARN

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu originated around 1925 by Carlos and his brother Helio Gracie. The reputation of this martial art discipline grew extensively when members of the Gracie family took part in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and Pride. The Gracie’s proved unbeatable!! It was obvious that fighters who only relied on the kicks and punches did not stand a chance when they met a fighter trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  is focused on using a takedown, throw or shoot to get the opponent off the ground and force them into a submission (surrender) as soon as possible by using chokes or joint locks. Provided using the right techniques, BJJ gives the ability to a smaller or physically weaker person to defend himself against a bigger or stronger opponent. These properties ensure that BJJ is a very interesting discipline for women.
