Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at PMA
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial arts discipline that is derived from the fundamentals of Kodokan Judo ground fighting as adapted by Carlos and Helio Gracie from Brazil. The art emphasizes bringing an opponent to the ground and then employing joint lock & choke techniques to subdue the opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu takes full advantage of body leverage. This strategy can neutralize the advantage of larger and stronger opponents and those with superior striking abilities, regardless of size.
