Gracie "Brazilian" Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that emphasizes positioning, technique, and leverage especially while ground fighting. This fighting system allows a smaller, weaker opponent to survive and even overcome a larger,stronger aggressor.

Jiu-Jitsu is effective for people of all ages, genders, sizes, and physical conditions.
The various aspects of Jiu-Jitsu include:

  • strikes (kicks and punches) to close the distance between you and your opponent
  • takedowns which rely on the body¬ís natural instincts
  • positioning and the use of weight and leverage in order to control and neutralize an aggressor
  • submission and choke holds to end the fight
