For those new to the sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling martial art that focuses on practical and functional self-defense through the use of leverage and technique. Jiu Jitsu teaches body mechanics as well as escapes, takedowns, and submissions (including joint-locks and chokeholds ) to achieve positional dominance over the opponent. This sport combines technical knowledge with physical and mental fitness.
