Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu























Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu is a form of grappling. That means there is no punching or kicking. It's more closely related to wrestling than to karate or boxing. Jiu-Jitsu was form of unarmed combat practiced by the samurai. This was eventually distilled into Judo with an emphasis on throwing. In the early 20th century, as Judo spread throughout the world, it was learned by the Gracie Family in Brazil. They decided to focus primarily on the groundwork and submission holds of the art, and spent the next sixty years developing their own unique brand of grappling now known as Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu.

Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu was introduced to the world through the original Ultimate Fighting Championship when Royce Gracie displayed its effectiveness by defeating men of all sizes and styles of fighting. This, despite his own weight of 178 lbs.
