Jiu Jitsu is a Martial Art for all
Gracie Jiu Jitsu or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as more commonly referred to, is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese jujutsu to create the art. It contains stand-up maneuvers, but it is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques. Gaining superior positioning—so one can apply the style’s numerous chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations on an opponent—is the key in BJJ.
There is simply no better martial art to use for self defense than Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Most all fights and street altercations will hit the ground within the first 30 seconds, once that happens there is no comparison. A jiu jitsu practitioner is taught how to move in ways that are foreign to most people. Simply put when on the ground with a jiu jitsu fighter, the ground is the ocean and they are the shark.
