Since 1925, more than 40 members of the Gracie family have dedicated their lives to developing the Jiu Jitsu system for self-defense.

From its roots also sprang the ever popular vale tudo and MMA with the now ubiquitous UFC tournament.

It’s not just a martial art!

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (japanese),often abbreviated to the English-language acronym BJJ (Brazilian jiu-jitsu), is a martial art, often abbreviated to the English-language acronym BJJ (Brazilian jiu-jitsu),is a martial art, a combat sport and a method of personal defense specialized in the fight and in particular in the one on the ground.

Ps. It should not be confused with its Japanese predecessor J’jutsu but is rather comparable to the discipline of Grappling.

I want to add a pattern, theeleventh.

Jiu Jitsu but I tell you in general about the systems of struggle practiced for example in the UFC have made a natural selection where the fighting experts have begun to prevail over all with the consequence of raising the level of fighters with the consequence that everyone has started to study the fighting systems.

Today for all athletes the knowledge of the fighting systems is an obligatory step to be able to enter the cage and climb the summit.

Now if strong strikers and combat professionals have done it, why shouldn’t you?

Even if you are a personal defense practitioner remember that 95% of street fights end up on the ground.

I know you don’t want to end up on the ground but you’re going to end up there, now you’re deciding if ending up on the ground for you can become your tactical choice, your strategy of that moment and learn the fight.

Street fighter video game characters have also learned Jiu Jitsu in 2019.

Now apart from this joke what I want you to know is that if you want to become a self-defense expert you are obliged to learn the fighting systems.

In addition to all the advantages that gracie have shown you the thing I want to emphasize is the ability to learn an incredible martial art, an extraordinary sport with real effectiveness in combat because of its intrinsic characteristic in studying it.

Being a martial art with inside a learning system based also a lot on practice with a non-cooperative companion where if you are in trouble you simply let him know with a Tap Out.

This approach allows you to learn how to make the techniques you study work in a non-cooperative context.

I assure you that few martial arts have this emphasis and focus in non-cooperative combat.

Many martial arts “in words” say they work in a non-cooperating form but then really the dedicated space is too little, not to say nothing but to be able to develop the attributes that make the techniques work you need a learning method in various phases and one of those that can not miss is the non-cooperating combat, or sparring.

Personally, I structure the training phases that prioritize the development of skills that are functional to the technique that are the most difficult parts to develop in people.

The problem is not the technique but the method to develop the technique that makes it functional.

I totally avoid the technique for its own sake because you have to decide whether to do martial arts and combat sports to keep you fit, so a lot of movement or if you want to learn really how do you hit someone who doesn’t want or how submit it with joint levers or suffocates an opposing aggressor.

If you want to become a self-defense expert, you also need to learn ground-fighting systems, as well as the use of cutting weapons, percussive and firearms, because it’s critical to have a total view of combat, that’s why you have to specialize in different areas in the study of personal defense including clearly the fight on the ground..

You can’t rule this out because the truth is that they often tell you not to end up on the ground because they don’t know what to teach you.

I want you to start studying the fight today because if it is true that under certain conditions it is unreasonable and dangerous to become a choice, a strategy that you cannot adopt if you do not know what to do.

Now I hope it is clearer why you need to do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and study ground wrestling.
