Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to overcome an enemy at close contact without violence. IT involves ground fighting and using chokeholds to bring your partner to submission. You will learn to employ several techniques, namely pressure-based isometric pulling, pushing, and holding. After a few classes, you’ll know how to neutralize a situation with simple moves rather than kicking or punching. If someone tries to grab you, you’ll have the tools to take control of the situation right away.
In addition to using your body, you’ll also use your mind to focus on your partner and consider your next move. Like playing chess, BJJ requires focus and the ability to think clearly while under pressure. Attending Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training may improve your mentality because it teaches awareness and builds confidence.
An ancient martial art form, Jiu Jitsu has roots in Eastern civilizations such as India and Japan. Grappling has been a form of fighting for many centuries, but the martial art was introduced to Brazil in the early 1900s, where it was cultivated and later brought to the United States around the 1970s.
