Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based martial art, combat sport, and self defense system. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan Judo (which itself is derived from Japan, the name Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an homage to this origin) in the early 20th century.

Jiu Jitsu instructs that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a larger, stronger opponent by using leverage and proper technique—most commonly by applying joint and chokes to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments, mixed martial arts bouts or self defense. Although many students of the art receive the benefits from the healthy lifestyle and weight control. Sparring (commonly called 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in progression of the Jiu Jitsu student.
