Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), referred to as the gentle art, is an effective grappling system for self-defense. It is practiced by people of all walks of life and has recently been getting a lot of attention by mixed martial arts organization like the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for its effectiveness in combat.
BJJ focuses on defeating (aka submitting) opponents without using punches, kicks, or strikes of any kind. Instead, the BJJ practitioner relies on the execution of proper technique based on the concept of leverage to gain superior positioning over aggressors and eventually submitting them with immobilizing chokeholds and joint locks. This method of self-defense makes it possible for a smaller opponent to render bigger stronger opponents helpless.
