What's Jiu Jitsu

Brazillian jiu-jitsu is a martial art derived from Japanese judo. Prior to the early 20th century there were many schools of jiu-jitsu in Japan each with different emphasis and philosophy.
This period, known as the Meiji restoration, was a time rapid change in Japan. The focus of the new government was for Japan to take its place in the world as a modern nation. Part of this modernization involved an effort by the Japanese government for Japan to participate in the modern Olympic movement and have its national sport – the grappling art jiu-jitsu – accepted as an Olympic sport. Under the auspices of Professor Jigaro Kano and his Kodokan organization the rules and techniques of jiu-jitsu gentle art), which he called judo(gentle way or path), were codified and taught throughout Japan and the world by his student emissaries and teachers. His students were forbidden from fighting or wrestling professionally. One of his premier students, Mitsuyo Maeda, in fact did fight and wrestle professionally throughout Europe, the United States, Cuba, Mexico and Brazil.
Maeda is said to have fought nearly 1000 no holds barred matches in his lifetime and was never defeated. He incorporated the techniques of his most difficult opponents into his style of jiu-jitsu. If you watch a high level Brazillian jiu-jitsu match today you will see Greco-Roman, freestyle and catch wrestling techniques integrated with modern judo and pre 20th century Japanese jiu-jitsu. 
Maeda settled in Brazil and taught his art there until his death in 1941. He taught the sons of his friend Gastão Gracie as well as other Brazillians. Carlos and Helio Gracie, the most famous sons of Gastao, were known for accepting the challenge of any type of fighter and defeating them. With their many progeny they practiced, taught and promoted their art throughout Brazil for the entirety of the 20th century.  This art came to be known as Gracie jiu-jitsu or Brazillian jiu-jitsu. The focus of Brazillian jiu-jitsu is on ground fighting. The effectiveness of this approach in one on one combat was shown to the world outside of Brazil in 1993 at UFC 1.
Helio Gracie’s son Royce at 185 lbs defeated all comers by submission using integrated arm and leg attacks against his much larger opponents. This is the hallmark of Brazillian jiu-jitsu; to submit the opponent using coordinated, leveraged arm and leg techniques without leaving permanent injury unless necessary.

You can also start your Martial Arts Journey learning the beauty of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and take for yourself and your family all the benefits that come with it.
You will learn Self-Defense,get in the best shape of your life and boost your confidence level in just in
few weeks of training.
