Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense.
If your goal is to become a fighter or to be able to defend yourself completely, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has significant advantages over most other martial arts. It remains the only single style that addresses all areas of fighting completely without the need for cross-training. With the popularity of contests like the Ultimate Fighting Championship, you will see people naming their styles as Wrestling or Kickboxing, but they all must supplement their training with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. To this day, there are still fighters entering the cage with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as their only method of training to ensure their victories.
