"JIU-JITSU FOR EVERYONE" WITH GRACIE BARRA
WHY BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
We know there are lots of options when choosing a martial arts style to practice. When comparing BJJ to other self-defense systems like kung fu, tae kwon do, kali, kickboxing or karate there’s an absolute reason why one should choose to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and that’ because it wins. It literally wins. Did you know that in the early 90’s the Ultimate Fighting Championship set forth to prove just that? What martial arts style would reign supreme if pitted head to head against each other; regardless of weight, height or strength. When Gracie Family member Royce Gracie entered the competition vastly outsized by his competition he impressed the world when he single-handedly won fight after fight against bigger, stronger and more athletic opponents using only his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Today the world of martial arts has been changed and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a prominent martial art for self-defense, sport, fitness, and fun!
