Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, “BJJ” for all Levels

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is widely considered to be one of the most effective styles of martial arts in the world and is a key component in the modern world of MMA.

Known as the “gentle art,” Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) focuses on balance, leverage and body manipulation, giving smaller or weaker opponents an equal or greater chance against larger or stronger adversaries. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu attempts to achieve dominant control on the ground through leverage of the body and time-tested techniques. Submission holds are a core element of BJJ, and the world-renowned Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructors at Bas Rutten’s Elite MMA in southern California can help you master these techniques.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) became very popular in the United States after Royce Gracie used it in some of the early UFC matches to defeat much larger and stronger opponents. Today it is one of the most popular martial arts in America. BJJ is a great martial art because it allows an individual to successfully control a larger opponent without relying solely on strength and power. This grappling method is widely popular in professional MMA, like what is practiced in the UFC, and for self-defense techniques as well.
