What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?

  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a non-striking martial art which is largely contested on the ground. It encompasses elements of both Judo and Wrestling as a means to takedown or sweep one’s opponent. It applies the principles of kuzushi (off-balancing), angles, timing, pressure and control to achieve the submission of one’s opponent.  Submission can occur from joint-locks, strangles or chokes. Submissions won’t be taught in the kids’ classes.

     

    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is divided into two styles, where rulesets and techniques differ: 

    • In Gi jiu jitsu, participants make use of the gi (kimono); the fabric can be gripped to apply various techniques including strangles (as in Judo).  
    • In No-Gi jiu jitsu, gripping the material is not allowed, and there is considerably less friction; as such, No-Gi is often faster-paced, incorporates more Olympic Wrestling-style techniques, and allows more submissions (notably leg-locks) in certain rulesets.
