What Is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a popular competitive martial art and self-defense system focused on grappling and ground combat. It is unique amongst other martial arts in that it focuses on ground fighting almost exclusively, even more so than other ground-focused disciplines such as Judo and wrestling. By taking a fight to the ground and eliminating the advantage of longer reach and greater physical strength, a skilled practitioner in Brazilian jiu-jitsu can easily overcome a larger opponent.
If you are a newcomer to the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, your first visit to the Academy of Combat Arts will be an introductory session to show you around our facility and demonstrate some basic techniques. When you begin regularly attending classes, you’ll find yourself surrounded by supportive students who were once beginners as well. We strive to maintain an atmosphere free from egos and intimidation.
