Jiu-Jitsu means “Gentle Art” in Japanese. It is a Grappling Martial Arts System that has evolved from the monks in India, to China, and then Japan.
Later, it was introduced to Brazil where it was retooled and redesigned for someone smaller to both control and submit someone bigger and stronger.
This is when it developed its distinct identity now known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. There are several branches of the gentle art:
It is imperative to know and be able to apply the concepts of self-defense. Not only is this the fundamental part where you learn about balance, base, leverage, and distance, but also is also where students learn how to control their emotions in a safe environment.
THE SPORT OF BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
Incorporating the uniform called a “Gi” or “Kimono”. Jiu Jitsu involves taking down the opponent, controlling them, and potentially submitting them through the application of joint locks and chokes. Sport Jiu Jitsu also typically has a points system and time limits.
NO-GI SUBMISSION GRAPPLING
It’s a mix of several other Grappling Sports and Martial Arts where the idea is the same as the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but it is practiced with a rash guard, shorts or spats, or your Gi pants.
