BJJ teaches the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system. BJJ is not solely a martial art, but it is also a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way of life.
BJJ became well known world wide through the popularity of mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, where Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu technique is very prominent. The beginnings of the contemporary MMA competition were largely tied up with proving the combat-efficiency of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The practice of BJJ as a sport, however, is strongly separated from MMA. Classes do not feature kicking or punching. The focus is on safe grappling technique that can be done on a daily basis with no more fear of injury than any other contact sport.
