WHAT IS BJJ?
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art that originated in Japan and then
migrated to Brazil in the early 1900s. Once in Brazil, the art was adopted by
the Gracie family, who made modifications so as to suit more modern-day self-defense situations. In particular, the emphasis was placed on ground
grappling. The idea being that if facing a bigger, stronger, and more
athletic adversary, they can be more easily controlled on the ground. Once taken
down, their physical advantages are severely diminished, and they can be
forced to submit through a variety of submission holds.
