Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. Jiu Jitsu embraces and demonstrates the concept that a smaller, weaker person can not only defend themselves against a bigger, stronger opponent using proper technique and leverage but also disable them by applying joint-locks and choke holds. When combined with a stand-up art (boxing, kick-boxing, Muay Thai) and wrestling it completes full-circle level of self defense that we see exhibited today in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
The roots of Jiu Jitsu are from Japan, specifically Judo ground fighting (newaza) that eventually made it’s way to Brazil. The sport has since morphed into the art that it is today by way of Carlos and Helio Gracie, who, along with Luiz França and Oswaldo Fadda founded the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
