For beginners and experienced alike, this class includes the techniques of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu made famous to the world by the Gracie family. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and self defense system that focuses primarily on ground fighting. The art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu evolved from Kodokan Judo (which itself is derived from various forms of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu) in the early 20th century. Along with the techniques of BJJ, students will learn the standing techniques of judo and wrestling. All techniques will be presented in both self-defense and sports scenarios. Through the use of leverage, body position, and proper technique, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu allows a smaller, weaker person to successfully defend against and defeat a larger, stronger assailant by the application of joint-locks, choke holds, and positional dominance.
