Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a self defence focused martial art based on leverage and timing, instead of strength and speed.
The art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches practitioners to defeat a bigger, more athletic opponent/ attacker, by using techniques that will exhaust your opponents energy, while preserving the practitioners energy.
As the popularity of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has grown as a martial art, it has split into two main areas. Sports Jiu Jitsu and self defence. We do have members who compete in BJJ competitions, but we focus heavily on the fundamentals off BJJ, not so much modern sports Jiu Jitsu. We focus on techniques that we can transfer to basic self defence, making sure techniques are “punch proof” and effective in self defence scenarios, not just sports grappling.
