Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and usingjoint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit or be knocked out depending on what submission method is used. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. It primarily uses Judo takedowns to gain the dominant position. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition.[3] Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.

SUBMISSION GRAPPLING

SUBMISSION GRAPPLING is derived from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and it is practised without the use of the Gi (also known as a kimono). The influence of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be seen in the types of positions and submissions most commonly used in the sport and but without the aid of the gi, thus increasing the amount of speed and athleticism required. By limiting the holding and sweeping options that is typical with the gi, practitioners are encouraged to apply submissions in order to advance positions and win the match ? hence the name, Submission Grappling. Before ingress in this modality, We advice the student to join our BASIC BJJ program to create a stronger foundation and take the most of the training.
