BJJ is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.
Jiu Jitsu, which means gentle art, is the oldest form of martial art. It originated in India more than 2000 years before Christ. It was created by monks who could not use any type of weapons to defend their lives against barbarian attacks. Jiu Jitsu spread through China and eventually took root in Japan. A Japanese man named Maeda brought Jiu Jitsu to Brazil in 1914 and was elaborated on by Carlos and Helio Gracie. Commonly known as BJJ – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is all about leverage. More than 80% of most fights end up on the ground in real street situations. This is where BJJ is at its best. No matter the size, a smaller man or women can submit a larger person with the correct training and technique.
