What is Brazilian jiu jitsu?
Brazilian jiu jitsu (or BJJ) is a martial art sport comprising primarily of grappling and ground fighting. BJJ is truly a unique self defence system, which its leverage-based techniques, including joint-locks and chokeholds, allows a smaller opponent to overcome and subdue a bigger and stronger opponent.
Founded by the Gracie family in the early 1900s, BJJ gained significant interest when members of the Gracie family were able to defeat much larger-sized opponents from other martial arts backgrounds in tournaments that preceded the now hugely popular UFC.
