Brazilian Jui jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It was originally derived from an older Japanese style similar to Judo. It was modified in the early 1900's in Brazil.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
