Savarese Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy
Brazilian jiu-jitsu, also called BJJ or Gracie jiu jitsu, is a really fun and practical martial art with an interesting history. BJJ was adapted from Japanese jiu-jitsu in Brazil in the early part of the 20th century. It was built to solve the problem of how a smaller and weaker person can overcome a larger and stronger opponent through leverage and technical skill. As an art it really shines when a fight ends up on the ground, as studies show up to 90% of altercations do. By controlling positions you are taught to apply chokes, arm and leg locks, sweeps and reversals. All martial arts attempt to solve the problems of self defense against a wide array of opponents and BJJ is no different.
