What Makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

How BJJ Can Stop Bullying

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that became popular because of its effectiveness when it comes to self-defense and competitive fighting. It originated in Japan and evolved in Brazil. BJJ focuses on ground fighting and submission holds – allowing the individual to have a unique and powerful discipline within the realm of martial arts. Sounds fascinating, right?

At its core, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu emphasizes the concept of leverage and technique through brute strength. This then allows smaller individuals to defend themselves against larger people. In that context, BJJ is the preferred choice of many, particularly those who seek practical self-defense skills.

But, what makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
How BJJ Promotes Weight Loss?

Using Grappling techniques and Submissions

Grappling techniques and submissions are not new to BJJ. These techniques involve controlling an opponent on the ground, utilizing joint locks, chokes, and positional dominance to force them into submission. Once successful, it will neutralize an individual’s striking abilities which brings the fight to the ground. A strategy that obviously, BJJ practitioners excel!

Development of mental discipline

Once an individual developed mental discipline, focus, and problem-solving skills will come naturally. And as they learn to think strategically about how they can win against the opponent, they’ll be able to learn to adapt to ever-changing situations. Meaning, the mental aspect of BJJ not only enhances one’s ability to defend themselves but also carries over into other aspects of life, fostering resilience and determination.

Leverage techniques

Leverage techniques are also one of the things that makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. You see, if a BJJ practitioner applies the principles of leverage – even if he/she is smaller, they can effectively control and submit their opponent. This is why BJJ is often referred to as the “gentle art” or the “art of human chess.” It’s not about overpowering your opponent, but rather using strategy and technique to gain the upper hand!

Emphasis on ground fighting

Unlike any other martial art in this world, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu emphasizes on ground fighting. This type of strategy allows you to gain the advantage over your opponent. Because as it happens, not everyone can fight on the ground. More so, you’ll be able to immobilize the latter and effectively neutralize proper striking abilities and minimize the chances of you getting significant damage.

BJJ is a lifelong skillset

There is always something new to learn in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. From a variety of submissions to new techniques, the learning will never stop. This will lead to constant growth and ensure that you are developed, engaged, and motivated for many years to come!
