Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or “BJJ” for short, is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and primarily ground fighting. BJJ is based on the principle that an individual can successfully defend themselves against bigger and stronger opponents by using leverage and technique to apply a series of joint-locks and chokeholds. In traditional BJJ, a “gi” uniform is worn. However, due to the rising popularity of MMA in recent years, the modern adaptation, “no-gi” BJJ, has become equally if not more relevant when compared to the traditional style. With a seemingly endless hierarchy of positions and counter maneuvers, BJJ is both physically and mentally challenging.
