What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. BJJ aims to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics.
With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students can practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking. Jiu-Jitsu comes from the Japanese words “Ju”, meaning “gentle” and “Jutsu” meaning “art,” essentially, “Jiu-Jitsu is the gentle art.” Jiu-Jitsu is one of the oldest forms of martial arts known to man.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of our students through training Jiu-Jitsu. The infinite benefits of this “gentle art” will improve your mental, physical, and all-around health.
