Gracie Jiu Jitsu – also known as Brazilan Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) – is universally regarded as one of the most effective martial arts for self defence. It is a style of which can be mastered by people of all ages and fitness levels. BJJ’s driving principle is that a smaller, weaker person using proper technique like leverage, joint-locks and chokeholds can successfully defeat a bigger, stronger opponent.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a proven, effective form of self defence. The same techniques you will learn that are taught to the U.S. Army, FBI, Secret Service and many other elite military and law enforcement agencies around the world. With 95% of all streetfights ending up on the ground, Gracie Jiu Jitsu’s focus on grappling on the ground makes it the best martial art for self defence.
