Brazilian Jiu jitsu (BJJ) explained

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that (mainly) takes place on the ground. The goal is to get a dominant position and to make sure the opponent “submits” as soon as possible. BJJ is based on traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu and Judo.

Around the year 1915 Japanese martial artist and Judo champion Maede moved to Brazil. He influenced the Gracie family, which in turn made the World know about the sport Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu got widely known mostly because of the participation of the Gracie family in organisations such as the UFC and Pride. To prove that their martial art was the most effective of all. Because BJJ was so new at the time, they won nearly every match. With their ground techniques they influenced the sport of fighting to such an extent, that fighters outside of the (sub)culture of BJJ started learning it. Now it is impossible to think about MMA without the influence of BJJ and ground fighting as a whole.

During the BJJ classes the Gi is worn (Gi is a Japanese word for the suit you wear during BJJ). There are also classes and competitions without the suit (or Gi), these are called No-Gi.
