Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
BJJ, "the gentle art", is a martial art that focuses on grappling techniques. BJJ uses a series of leverages, and techniques to allow a smaller person to defend him/herself against a larger, stronger opponent. BJJ has been proven, when used properly, to be an affective method of dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). A student can train in BJJ for self defence, sport jiujitsu (submission grappling) and mixed martial arts competition.
