Brazillian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
Unlike Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is known as the “The Gentle Art”. Rooted in the concept of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu evolved and grew in popularity from Brazil, largely through the Gracie Barra Family name and growing in demand in the United States through the UFC as well as other combat sports. The idea behind this art is about utilizing the basic knowledge of human anatomy to submit one’s opponent despite size or strength by way of holds, locks, angles, pressure and timing. It is an art of functionality, making it an ideal and primary choice for self-defense and can be taught to just about anyone at any skill level.
