Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling Martial Art that uses leverage and angles to manipulate an adversary. There is no striking in Jiu Jitsu; fights are finished with submissions from joint locks and chokes. Because of its unique manipulation of the body,  it doesn’t require strength or size for a practitioner to dominate their opponent.  Contact us for your free trial class.
