What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques.  The aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics.   With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking.
