Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling with an emphasis on ground fighting.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground and applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.
