What is BJJ
Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a functional combat sport focusing mainly on ground fighting and grappling. The main aim in to get the fight to the ground and defeat your opponent by joint locks or chokes. Sounds cruel? It absolutely is not! Training Brazilian jiu-jitsu is superfun, training sessions are safe, exciting and challenging to the body and mind. BJJ classes are a great way to improve your physical health, get in shape, meet other nice people and learn and practice functional self-defense in a recreational setting.
