Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered to be "the gentle art". Jiu-Jitsu emerged over 4,000 years ago and can be traced back to India and the Buddhist Monks. It was a martial art that did not involve violence or weapons. It spread and evolved over the years through Japan (officially now called Judo in Japan) and then to Brazil in 1925, when Helio Gracie opened the first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school there. Helio improved on traditional Jiu-Jitsu to accommodate practitioners of smaller, weaker size. Focusing on technique, he was able to reduce the reliance on strength. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was first widely introduced to the United States in the 1990's and has continued to grow and gain popularity. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts today, and is well-known across the globe. We offer 1 Free Week of training.
