Learn Jiu Jitsu From a World Champion
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
A Japanese judoka, prizefighter, and former member of the Kodokan named Mitsuyo Maeda emigrated to Brazil in the 1910s where a local influential businessman named Gastão Gracie helped him get established. In return for his aid, Maeda taught judo to Gastão’s son Carlos, who then taught the art to his brothers, including Hélio Gracie. Through their own study and development, Carlos and Hélio are regarded as the originators of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a style distinct from Japanese Jiu Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) focuses on grappling and ground fighting. The techniques of BJJ focus on the principles of leverage, balance, and timing allowing a weaker, smaller with limited athletic ability to defend them self against a larger and stronger opponent. The art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is comprised of many sweeps, reversals, chokes, arm locks, and leg locks. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu today continues to evolve as an art and sport.
