Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art based on grappling. The central theme of BJJ is the efficient use of skill to control a resisting opponent and compel him to submit. Since it’s easier to gain control on the ground rather than in a standing position, BJJ involves the skill to take the opponent on the ground and wrestle for a dominant control position.
One of the fastest growing combat sports in the world, MMA is the amalgamation of various combat sports and martial arts – Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and the like.
