What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the single most effective martial art you can learn for self-defense. Unlike most martial arts, Jiu Jitsu doesn’t rely on size and strength. It’s all about leverage and joint manipulation. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a Martial art designed to equip a physically smaller or weaker individual with an effective method of defending against a larger and stronger attacker. When applying BJJ techniques, leverage is paramount, as leverage is the secret to the amplification and most efficient use of force. BJJ also has the most developed methods of fighting while on one’s back, a position weaker fighters will often find themselves when attacked. The innovations are continuing with BJJ fighters today. Constant testing and refinement during sparring has resulted in this unique style of Jiu Jitsu.
Above being the most affective Martial Art, it will get you in a great shape in a fun and contagious atmosphere.

You will be exerting a lot of energy on the mat, and that exertion will help you get in great shape.
