What is BJJ?

The origins of Brazilian Jujitsu 🌱

The roots of Brazilian Jujitsu (BJJ) lie in Japanese history, but it was in Brazil that this martial art was adapted and perfected to become what it is today. Known for its emphasis on ground fighting and submissions, BJJ uses holds, locks, and leverage techniques , allowing a less physically strong practitioner to defeat a larger or heavier opponent. Over the years, Brazilian Jujitsu has become a cornerstone of mixed martial arts (MMA) and an essential element of self-defense.
