Interested in Grappling? Train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) emphasizes ground fighting, employing the most EFFECTIVE chokes and submissions in Martial Arts. Statistics show that 80% of fights end up on the ground, so it only makes sense that in order to protect yourself better you learn how to fight to survive when an altercation lands you on your back. Unlike most other martial arts, BJJ allows a smaller person to defeat a larger opponent by sophisticated application of leverage and techniques, instead of muscle. Popularized in “reality fighting tournaments,” BJJ stands out against other martial arts as a proven method of self-defense! It consists of learning how to defend yourself against another by nullifying an opponent’s attack, taking them to the ground, maneuvering to a position of dominance, then applying leverage and technique to finish your attacker.
