Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ)?
BJJ is a grappling martial art that utilizes technique and leverage to impose holds and joint locks while on the ground, allowing a person to defend him or herself effectively against a stronger and larger opponent. While many hand-to-hand martial arts rely on strikes using speed and power, BJJ takes a different approach: speed and power are not a requirement and are often times not necessary. BJJ emphasizes closing the distance between you and your opponent and taking him or her to the ground where technique and leverage can be used to apply submissions or to strike more efficiently.
