Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) today is one of the most popular, fastest growing and practical martial arts practiced; even outside of professional combat, BJJ is taught and used by various military and law-enforcement groups as an effective way to manage and subdue assailants without having to resort to weapons and striking. BJJ is a combat sport focused on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ established its roots when a Japanese Judo Master Mitsuyo Maeda moved to Brazil in the 1914 introduced the art to the Gracie family.
Grappling does not use punches and kicks, but instead focuses on gripping your opponent and taking him to the ground. The unique quality about practising BJJ is that it encourages endless creativity in approaching any sparring match. The rules and regulations in BJJ sparring encourage the practitioner to be a thinking fighter.
Our BJJ programme is currently headed by Professor Marcelo Tavares, BJJ black belt under Italo Lins, and gifted teacher and competitor.
