Grappling is the art of controlling an opponent in a close-quarter combat situation, typically on the ground. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling-based martial art that was founded by the Gracie family in Brazil in the early 20th century. BJJ emphasises the use of leverage and technique to overcome larger, stronger opponents. It is a highly technical sport that requires a great deal of strategy, problem-solving, and athleticism.
In BJJ, the goal is to submit your opponent through various techniques such as joint locks or chokes. The techniques of BJJ are based on the principles of physics and leverage, which allows smaller and weaker individuals to defeat larger and stronger opponents. As a result, BJJ is a martial art that is highly effective for self-defence, as well as for sport competition.
