USMAA Certified TrainerRead more
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is primarily a grappling martial art with techniques and strategies deeply rooted in the science of ground fighting. A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner will attempt to bring his opponent to the ground and then obtain a dominant position there. Once in this dominant position, the Jiu-Jitsu practitioner can choose from a wide arsenal of joint locks, chokes and strikes with which to subdue his attacker. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi), mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, and for fitness.
