Brazilian Jiu Jitsu evolved from the Japanese martial art Judo into its own distinct discipline. It focuses on employing leverage rather than strikes to control an opponent, thus eliminating the importance of size and strength in a conflict. Skillfully applied joint locks, submissions, and chokes neutralize any opponents – making Jiu Jitsu the world’s most effective and efficient form of self-defense.
Jiu Jitsu also differs from many martial arts in that it is practiced as a sport featuring two basic classes of competition: Gi and NoGi (Submission Grappling).
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is most often practiced with the Kimono (gi). The gi allows for a wider range of techniques due to the manipulation of the sleeves, pants, and jacket. The gi also promotes a slower, more methodical game which forces the user to think more strategically about their attacks and defenses.
