What is Jiu-Jitsu?
Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, a combat sport, and a self-defense system. Many people also use Jiu-Jitsu as a fitness program. It has proven to be the most practical and effective self-defense system in the world. It relies on leverage and technique, rather than strength and size. This allows you to defend yourself against much larger and stronger attacker. As a result, Jiu-Jitsu is a great sport for everyone, including women and children.
Jiu-Jitsu is an intense aerobic and anaerobic workout. This will improve your overall health and fitness including your flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular fitness as well as your ability to burn fat and build muscle endurance.
Jiu-Jitsu students traditionally practice in a Gi (or Kimono, a martial arts uniform similar to a judo outfit). In recent years, many schools and academies have incorporated a No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu program into their curriculum; this is commonly referred to as submission wrestling. No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu students typically wear a rash guard type t-shirt and shorts (with no pockets to avoid toes or fingers getting caught). With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity without the threat of serious injuries.
