Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is considered the most effective martial art in the world. Gracie Jiu-jitsu will help you dominate your opponent by using balance and knowledge of biomechanics. The success of Jiu-Jitsu is indisputable and battle-tested.
The system uses the principal of leverage to attack the two weakest parts of the body: the joints and the arteries.
When practiced correctly, strength is of little importance, because even a child can generate hundreds of pounds of leverage by manipulating weight correctly.
When Gracie Jiu-Jitsu reached America, it created a revolution in martial arts. Today, every mixed martial artist (full contact fighting competitions) must have a strong Jiu-Jitsu background in order to compete.
One hobby, many benefits
Many people learn Brazilian Jiu-Jjitsu for the mental strategy alone, which is compared to chess. But unlike the board game, in order to succeed you need to build up your endurance, flexibility and repertoire of techniques. The added intellectual dimension makes it a highly rewarding activity that combines mind and body.
