Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger 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.

Up until the 90s, Brazil was well known for soccer and its beaches. Not many knew that the country had developed a long history of a martial art know as the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This martial art rose into prominence during the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event in 1993. Royce Gracie won the event using BJJ by overcoming opponents larger and stronger than him. Afterwards, people were eager to learn about this martial art, a somewhat mysterious form during those days when Taekwondo, karate, kickboxing, and Kung Fu gained prominence from Hollywood movies.
BJJ training can be used 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, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
