Brazilian Jiujitsu

The origin of BJJ is a submission-oriented style of Judo/Jiu- Jitsu, which was brought in the mid 1900 from Japan to Brazil. There, the art was developed and specialized itself into ground techniques. Its effectiveness was proven all over the world through several so called “Vale Tudo”- fights (no- rules- fights) where BJJ fighters defeated much heavier and taller opponents of any other martial arts.

BJJ includes throws (like in Judo), all kind of joint locks (wrist, arm, shoulder, knee, ankle, etc…), muscle squeezer and chokes. BJJ is mainly based on leverage principles, thus it is not a matter of pure physical force.
In the traditional way of training a gi (kimono) is worn, although there is a “no- gi” variant, which includes wrestling techniques.
