What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
A martial art that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself/herself against a larger individual by using leverage. It emphasizes getting an opponent to the ground in order to utilize ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks, chokeholds, positional control and leverage. The art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches on the ground, physical strength can be offset or enhanced by an experienced grappler who knows how to maximize force using mechanical advantage instead of pure physical strength. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art widely utilized by MMA fighters worldwide. This art was popularized in early 90s by Royce Gracie when he dominated the UFC by taking his opponents to the ground and skillfully submitting them even though he was outweighed by nearly 100lbs most matches.
