Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a self-defense system, martial art, and combat sport system that focuses on grappling with particular emphasis on ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was developed from Kodokan Judo fundamentals that were taught by a number of Japanese individuals including Takeo Yano, Mitsuyo Maeda, Soshihiro Satake, and Isao Okano. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu eventually came to be its own defined combat sport through the innovations, practices, and adaptation of judo through the Gracie Family.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution to take the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling" within the BJJ community) and live drilling play a major role in training and the practitioner's development. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is often regarded is the most effective form of self-defense and the most efficient system of combat. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is considered a martial art, a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and building character, and a way of life.
