    • The art was derived from the Japanese martial art  of Kodokan  judo in the early 20th century, which was itself developed from a number of schools (or Ryu) of Japanese jujutsu in the 19th century.

      It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger assailant.

      By using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.

      Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained 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.
