What is Jiu-Jitsu?

  • An ancient Martial Art that was practiced by Japanese Samurai?
  • A self-defense system that utilized throws and submission holds?
  • A sport where you grapple wearing a Kimono?

To some extent, any of the statements above is true, though we should definitely add much more to get closer to the core of what stands for Jiu-Jitsu today.

  • It is a highly effective combat sport that shapes our modern understanding of sport combat. Jiu-Jitsu gained it's fame challenging and accepting challenges from martial arts practitioners and athletes from different combat sports in mixed martial arts competitions.
  • It is the combat sport that has demonstrated how grappling and submission holds allow dominating and winning sport combats with very few ruleset limitations even when the athlete seems to bring inferior athletic capacity like less reach, lighter etc.
  • It is a rounded and effective training system that offers the opportunity for young and old to practice full contact combat sport and achieve significant results and improvement in terms of health, strength, coordination, body awareness, self esteem, and much, much more.
