Considered the most effective Self Defense martial arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an art form originated in Japan, from the Japanese culture of the Samurais. The Samurai fighters needed means for defense in case they lost their weapons, and the art of submission through pressure and contortions of the opponent was effective. Fast forward to 1917 when a young Carlos Gracie refined the art and opened his first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy spreading the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to the world.
Primarily Jiu Jitsu relies on choke holds, joint locks and immobilization to stop an assailant, rather than striking techniques.
For women and children, Jiu Jitsu is the perfect form of self defense. The basic design was created so that the smaller person could subdue a much larger opponent or attacker when using proper technique.
