Jiu means “gentle, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding.” Jitsu means “art” or “technique” and represents manipulating the opponent’s force against himself rather than confronting it with one’s own force. It’s based on clinching and grappling techniques that utilize leverage, proper technique and timing as its principles. Gracie or Brazilian jiu-jitsu was created and developed by Carlos and Helio Gracie in the early 20’s in Brazil.
For 80 years, the Gracie family proved through no-holds barred matches against heavier and bigger opponents that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was the most efficient form of Self-Defense there is. BJJ, as it’s also known, it’s now practiced by every professional mixed martial artist in activity and is the primary form of Self-Defense taught to the military of many countries around the world.
BJJ training can be used for street self-defense (anti-bullying, rape prevention, law enforcement) and sport grappling tournaments. The philosophy behind Jiu-Jitsu’s success lays in the following strategy:
– Close the distance and clinch;
– Take the attacker/opponent to the ground;
– Establish a safe and dominant position;
– Finish the fight with the application of chokes or joint locks.
