Self defense

Learning BJJ will give you an arsenal of effective martial arts techniques you can use to defend yourself if the need ever arises. Many in the martial arts community view Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as one of the most effective martial arts for self-defense.

It’s a great argument, given how effective BJJ has proven to be when applied in real-life situations. From mixed martial arts cages to law enforcement, BJJ is in a class of its own when it comes to how many different tools it gives you to end a fight.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that was developed to allow smaller fighters to defeat larger, less-skilled opponents by taking advantage of leverage. The techniques used in BJJ also give you a myriad of tools that can help you to come out on top if you find yourself in a disadvantageous position in a fight. For example, the guard position used in BJJ neutralizes many of the advantages a person would get from being on top in a fight.
