Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) took the world by storm in 1993 when Royce Gracie won the first 3 of 4 UFC tournaments, proving the effectiveness of his family’s style of ground fighting. BJJ promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can defeat a bigger, stronger opponent by using leverage and proper technique. Emphasis is placed on attaining a superior position from which joint locks or choke holds can be applied.

Since most fights eventually go to the ground, BJJ is a key component of self-defense training. Skills are developed through drilling and live sparring, called “rolling”. As students progress they have the opportunity to attain belt ranking and compete in tournaments.
