  and aggression, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu utilizes leverage and body position in order to gain mechanical advantages over opponents, allowing control of an opponent.  The ability to control an opponent then allows the application of submission holds and if in a self defense scenario also allows effective strikes to be thrown.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu submissions focus primarily on the use of arm locks and choke holds, and to a lesser extent leg locks.  Jiu Jitsu has been demonstrated to allow smaller individuals to often overcome much larger, stronger opponents.

looking for something mentally challenging, for social interaction, or just because it just so fun to do.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can offer all of this and more.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is great for self defense in appropriate situations (the attacker is unarmed).  BJJ provides a systematic approach to dealing with an attacker.  Training BJJ will also familiarize you with situations that you may at first find uncomfortable teaching you to relax and move efficiently in stressful situations.  Most of us have seen the footage of the earliest Mixed Martial Arts fights.  Jiu Jitsu proved how effective it was against other martial arts such as karate, boxing, and kickboxing even when the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter was the smaller individual.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be a great workout.  If your tired of boring workouts in the gym and looking for something new and mentally challenging BJJ might be just what your looking for.  There are hundreds of techniques and variations and endless ways to combine them.  BJJ will keep your brain craving for more for years. 

Great friendships are made training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  Training BJJ together builds trust and camaraderie as only a few things do.  If you like to travel gyms all across the country and world will happily invite you in.

Whatever your reason might be BJJ is an exciting, fun, and rewarding martial art.
