BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU HISTORY
Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport and a form of self-defense that focuses on grappling, especially ground fighting. It was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan Judo in the early 20th century, which was itself then, a recently-developed system (founded in 1882), based on multiple schools of Japanese jujutsu. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend himself against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique; most notably, by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. 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.

"I walked into the martial arts school at 297lbs. When I first started working out, I was always out of breath in the first 15 minutes. Heart was pounding in my ears. It was insanely difficult, but it was worth it. I knew each time I came to class, I would be making myself better in some way. The environment at the school fostered brotherhood and confidence. After 10 months I lost 50lbs and now I disappear in my clothes. Do yourself a favor and join us! " - Arlande, student
