What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Often called “the gentle art,” Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a traditional martial art with many practical applications. At its core, it is a proven system of self-defense that allows the trained practitioner to defend him or herself against larger assailants in a wide variety of situations, through the use of leverage, angles, positioning and control. Jiu-jitsu also offers an intense, full-body workout in a safe, fun and communal setting. With an endless array of techniques available to every conceivable body type, personality and age, jiu-jitsu truly has something to offer everyone.
