WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU?
BJJ is a combat sport and martial art based on ground fighting. The main objective is to take your opponent to the ground and use leverage and technique to subdue your opponent via a chokehold or joint lock. While this sounds violent, BJJ is a martial art in which you can defend yourself without hurting the other person. Our sport revolves around techniques and training that allow a weaker, smaller person, to control and neutralize a larger, stronger opponent.
