Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

brazilian jiu jitsu for women Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the hottest martial art forms right now. With a strong focus on grappling and ground fighting, this self defense system is not solely a martial art; it's also a method for promoting physical fitness, self esteem, discipline and building character. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu allows a smaller and weaker person to defend against a larger and stronger attacker by using leverage and specific techniques that include joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat their assailant. Because of this, it's become one of the most popular martial art forms for women interested in learning self defense skills.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Style

The emphasis of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to get your opponent to the ground in order to neutralize the superior reach and more powerful attacks of a larger and stronger opponent. Once on the ground, the trained technician can overpower their opponent using ground fighting techniques, submission holds, joint-locks and chokeholds.

Once you've taken ahold of your opponent, there's many techniques to take the fight to the ground including takedown techniques and "pulling guard" where you sit straight down or jump up and wrap your legs around your opponent. Once your brazilian jiu jitsu opponent is on the mat there's a number of maneuvers you can use to get yourself into a suitable position to apply a submission technique.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training

BJJ training is commonly used in sport grappling tournaments and extensively in mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions. Many gyms offer training with or without a gi (the traditional martial arts uniform). Practice involves a lot of sparring (or "rolling" as we call it) and live drills that teach students proper Jiu-Jitsu technique.

When you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you'll learn specific techniques to take an attacker to the ground. You'll learn how to attack and defend yourself while on the bottom or on top of your opponent. You'll also learn techniques to improve your position on the ground including sweeps and ways to pass your opponent's guard to get yourself into a better position to attempt a submission.
