Brazilian Jiu Jitsu For Self Defence
Developed as a version of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu grew as a preferred method of self-defence for people of smaller stature.
Its techniques allow expert practitioners to overcome opponents of much bigger stature than themselves.
The main way Brazilian Jiu Jitsu works is by bringing opponents down to ground level.
From there, it uses a range of locks and holds to keep them down. As a sport, each successful hold is awarded points, and it is possible to immobilise opponents completely.
By promoting the idea that smaller athletes can prevail over bigger ones, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is used to encourage children.
It is also a great way of developing confidence in women.
