About Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


What makes BJJ so different? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is widely regarded as the world’s most effective ground fighting (grappling) system. While it has been evolving since the early 1900s as a martial art, street fighting system, and sport, the last ten years have brought it the most popularity in America and abroad as a result of globally distributed media coverage of victories in numerous challenge matches and mixed martial arts competitions pitting athletes with mastery of various martial arts.
