“Training under coach Jader has been second to none, after 8 weeks of training I have soaked up a lot of knowledge and continue to improve every lesson. Jader has a high level of skills in bjj and coming from Brazil he has earned his belt! After a short period of time I understood this is much more of an art than I thought! So much to learn its addictive!” Mike W
What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It was developed, refined and popularised through the experiments, practices, and adaptation of judo through Carlos and Hélio Gracie who passed their knowledge on to their extended family. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking 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. It is not solely a martial art; it is also a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people, and ultimately a way of life.
