Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) has been a popular fighting art in Brazil for many years, and although it is fairly new to Australia, it is fast becoming one of the popular martial arts in the country.
BJJ uses a variety of submissions, chokes and locks to subdue their opponent. Defined as a “soft art” BJJ uses skilled techniques rather than brute force to defeat an opponent in a variety of ground positions, meaning that an opponent’s size and strength are not a factor. This gives males and females an even playing field where size and strength can be easily overcome with skill.
Law Enforcement statistics show that 95% of all street fights end up on the ground. Gracie Jiu Jitsu is the only Martial Art that effectively addresses ground grappling making it the ultimate martial art for realistic self defence.
It is a proven and effective self defence used by the Gracie family to win countless no rules challenge matches and taught to the U.S. Army, FBI, DEA, Secret Service and many more elite military and law enforcement agencies around the world.
