What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and self-defense system which focuses on controlling an opponent through grappling and ground fighting. With BJJ a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, taking the fight to the ground, and applying joint-locks and choke-holds. BJJ is often used in such activities as sport grappling tournaments, mixed martial arts competitions, and for self-defense. We teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a safe and family friendly environment, that empowers and encourages our students to learn and grow.
