What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

BJJ is a grappling-based martial art that focuses on ground fighting and submission holds. It was developed in Brazil in the early 20th century by the Gracie family, who modified traditional Japanese jiu-jitsu techniques to create a more effective self-defence system.The beauty of BJJ lies in its adaptability – regardless of your size, strength, or athletic ability, you can learn techniques that allow you to defend yourself against larger, stronger opponents. By leveraging principles of leverage, timing, and technique, BJJ empowers practitioners of all ages and fitness levels.
