Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a devastating fighting and grappling art developed by the Gracie Family of Brazil. BJJ contains many self-defense techniques, throws, takedowns and submission holds that can finish a fight. At our Lyndhurst BJJ facility, we believe 90% of altercations and attacks end up on the ground. We teach you to fight from there and off your back as well as on top. BJJ, also known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, was developed to allow the smaller person to defeat the larger person through the application of leverage and submission holds. Holds such as chokeholds and joint locks such as armbars, kneebars and leglocks. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular Martial Arts in the world today because of it’s versatility as a self defense and its sport aspects.
