“The biggest lesson I learnt from Jiu-Jitsu was how to truly know myself” – Carlos Gracie
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is known as “the gentle art”. It is a grappling based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Much of the technique in BJJ is centered on taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing superior leverage, grip and position upon your opponent. One of the keynotes of BJJ is the ability of technique and focus to overcome size, strength and aggression. This is why BJJ is considered one of the most practical forms of self-defense on the planet. BJJ will teach you how to control someone without getting hurt, or having to hurt them.
