What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?

An art based on Japanese Jiu Jitsu and Judo, BJJ has been developed by the Gracie family over several generations in Brazil.

It is now one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world today.

BJJ focuses on the use of mechanical leverage and tactics to allow a smaller person to overcome a larger and stronger assailant.

Why do it?

BJJ is great for cardiovascular fitness and body strength, it also teaches you the best defence possible from being pushed or knocked to the ground.
