Brazilian Jiu Jitsu found its origins in Judo but through practices and experiments it became its own art and is now recognised as its own sport. BJJ consists mainly in ground fighting using techniques and manoeuvres to gain a physical advantage over your opponent in order to submit him with different locks and chokes, so you could picture it like a hug, a really, really tight hug… An interesting aspect of the sport is that it allows a smaller person to defend himself against a bigger one taking him to the ground and using techniques and leverage to defeat him. It can be an excellent self-defence lesson for men and women and can quickly become a lifestyle.
