People who are curious about BJJ usually ask similar questions. Here are some of the most popular ones:
The name jiu-jitsu in Japanese literally means “the gentle art”. When compared to others, BJJ is a martial art that you can practice in a very intense way without the risk of serious injuries. The focus of this combat sport is not to violently destroy the opponent with punches and kicks. It is to take the adversary to the ground and control them. You can decide whether you want to hurt the other person or not. BJJ gives you the advantage to talk to somebody and to resolve the confrontation peacefully.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu’s approach to self-defense is different from other martial arts. Not many know that the origin of the UFC can be traced to the Gracies’ family desire to show jiu jitsu’s efficacy and superiority to other disciplines. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches to fight smarter, not harder. Since most of the fights end up on the ground, that’s the focus of many of the techniques. Helio Gracie also perfectioned jiu jitsu to enable a smaller person to defend himself from a bigger opponent. This style doesn’t focus on strength, but on leverage, reflexes and technique, giving little guys a chance.
