The Origin of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Originating in Japan, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu became a popular martial art form in 20th century Brazil. Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant, taught Jiu-Jitsu to several men including Carlos Gracie and Helio Gracie, who passed it on to their sons. Jiu-Jitsu’s popularity spread to the United States in the early 1990’s after Helio Gracie’s son, Royce Gracie, used it to win the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Following Royce Gracie’s success using Jiu-Jitsu in UFC matches, it has become an essential skill in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
What makes Jiu-Jitsu Unique?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a highly-effective form of self-defense, which focuses on real-life scenarios where one might encounters and teaches students how to resist them. The skills students are taught in class focus on technique and leverage instead using weight and strength. This will enable them to overcome attackers that might be larger and stronger than they are, making it an excellent form of defense for women.
Students will also experience a number of health benefits from their Jiu-Jitsu training, including weight loss and improved cardiovascular health.
