Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

07 October 2013 Comments Off on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

This semester, the Sports Center is offering a new course in Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ). The course will begin after the Bayram break.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend him/herself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground — most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.

Since its inception in 1914, its parent art of judo was separated from older systems of Japanese ju-jitsu by an important difference that was passed on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu: it is not solely a martial art, but also a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people, and, ultimately, a way of life.
