BJJ emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds. The advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful striking, both of which are negated when the fight is brought to the ground.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend him or herself in combat. What most people don’t know, is that Jiu Jitsu will also allow you to apply those same principles to fighting the daily battles of life, like weight loss, stress, relationship issues, and self-confidence. You will learn how to think through problems more constructively than before, on and off the mats.
