Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a Martial Art focusing on technique and leverage. Bringing an opponent to ground allows the more skilled practitioner to dominate and neutralize a larger, stronger fighter.
Taking the Japanese Jiu-Jitsu brought to Brazil by Esai Maeda in the 1920s Carlos and Helio Gracie developed the art into the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu we know today. Using leverage, timing and natural body movements the Gracie Family have demonstrated their styles effectiveness against martial artists and figthers of all types. From the original Gracie Challenge to the UFC and ADCC, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proved itself over and over again.
A typical lesson starts with a warm up and conditioning drills, followed by instruction and demonstration of specific techniques and tactics. The session ends with 'rolling' (controlled sparring) in which students learn to apply and hone their skills. The classes are an amazing workout that will test you both mentally and physically whilst giving you confidence and improvements in your Jiu-Jitsu game.
