Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that uses leverage and applied pressure to control your opponent. This allows a smaller weaker individual to defend themselves against a much larger, stronger attacker. It has been shown to be one of the most effective forms of self defence on the planet.
How do we know this? Well the legendary Gracie family dominated early mixed martial arts competition using only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
But Jiu Jitsu is about more than just self defence and competition. As a matter of fact less than 5% of our School actually compete. All our other students are there to gain fitness, lose weight, develop self confidence, or just for fun.
