Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), also known as "the gentle art" was developed by the Gracie family in the early part of the 20th century. BJJ is one of the most effective martial arts in existence due to its practical application and the fact that it has and is constantly tested against other martial arts styles. BJJ is both applicable for self defense and sport competition. In fact, BJJ was instrumental in the development of Mixed Martial Arts and remains a core part of MMA today.
BJJ focuses on technique over strength. Many smaller opponents (including women) have defeated larger and stronger assailants using proper BJJ. A weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant through the use of leverage, proper technique, and weight distribution.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not only the foundation of MMA competition, it has also been adopted by the United States military as an essential component to their combative systems.
