Features and Benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a highly effective martial art for men, women, and children. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu relies on leverage, timing, and proper technique to overcome larger, stronger, and more aggressive opponents. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a sophisticated grappling system, which includes throws, hold downs, and submissions. It can be practiced recreationally, or competitively, at all ages. Regular practice encourages a high level of physical fitness, increased coordination, a developed problem solving ability, and camaraderie.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a powerful system of self defense, it forms the basis for the U.S. Army’s Modern Combatives program, it is considered a foundational discipline for professional mixed martial artists, and many of the techniques are also well suited for women’s self defense situations. While speed and strength will always be factors in physical altercations, a well trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner, male or female, will be able to negate much of his/her opponent’s power through the use of proper technique, leverage, and timing.
