Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based martial art which focuses on controlling a resisting opponent while utilizing techniques to force a submission. It is generally easier to control an opponent while grounded than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is focused on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground and wrestling for dominant control from where they can be neutralized.
To overcome bigger, stronger and aggressive opponents with less size and strength is the key of the discipline. This is done by learning superior leverage, grip and positions. Students of BJJ gain a deep understanding of balance, technique and dynamics of the human body.

Benefits

Anxiety and Fear management:
As a martial art, BJJ may be the most uncomfortable and claustrophobic due to its unfamiliar movements and techniques. Students may be put in challenging situations that teach the importance of keeping calm and reacting skilfully. Students are also shown how to think strategically and plan ahead – a principle that can be applied to daily life. Often times the most important thing to learn in BJJ training is how to relax and cultivate self-control.

Improve strength through Flexibility:
In BJJ winning the fight isn’t just about strength, flexibility is also important. BJJ is not about being the strongest or the largest, it’s about who has the best technique and mindset. This flexibility assists in all other aspects of your training.
