Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ as it is commonly referred to is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan Judo and Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling in the early 20th century.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger opponent by using leverage and proper technique, most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments, mixed martial arts competition or self defense.
If you are a fan of the UFC, there is a good chance you have already seen it in action! For many professional MMA fighters having an in depth understanding and knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu is essential, many past & current MMA champions have a foundation in Jiu-Jitsu and use it to regularly defeat their opponents. Being able to stand and fight is one thing, being able to take your opponent to the ground and win is another thing completely.

The basic Jiu-Jitsu class contains a pre-workout, consisting of plyometric movements and body weight exercises. This pre-workout is progressive and becomes more and more difficult as students advance through the program. After the instruction, students engage in 60-90 minutes of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and submission wrestling training, a very effective cardio and muscle building workout.
