Jiu-Jitsu has gained a lot of attention in recent years, and it’s pretty obvious why. This discipline stands apart from other Martial Arts due to its focus on grappling, rather than the kicking and punching that characterize disciplines such as Karate and Taekwondo. Jiu-Jitsu is known to improve fitness levels, prepare its practitioners for situations requiring self-defense, and relieve stress.

Made for the real world, Jiu-Jitsu is a form of self-defense that every person should master. Jiu-Jitsu focuses on ground-level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques. This makes Jiu-Jitsu ideal when learning how to take on an opponent who may be larger than you, without necessarily having to hurt them.
