Jiu-jitsu sometimes referred to as Ju-Jitsu is a combat sport developed ages ago by the Gracie family from a series of Kodokan Judo and Japanese Ju Jitsu but is based out of Brazil. Today, JiuJitsu is riding the wave of the “Mixed Martial Arts” (MMA) explosion, and is the fastest growing Martial Art in the world. The art is a way to defend oneself through various movements and techniques of grappling and ground fighting.
It uses tactics that involve throwing and tackling the opponent on ground using the hips and the shoulders. The fighter may also use submission hold technique once the opponent is on the ground. The submission technique can be done through choke holds, compression locks or joint locks. Joint locks involves the fighter isolating a joint of his opponent while compression locks involves pressing a muscle of the opponent against a strong bone. Choke holds on the other hand aims at disrupting the opponent’s blood supply to the brain.
