Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique: most notably, by applying joint-locks and choke-holds to defeat them. BJJ can be trained for self-defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling plays a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
In addition to being an excellent way to get into the best shape of your life, you will find that with BJJ training come many wonderful benefits. Benefits of training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:

Some students like the idea of learning in a semi-private (small group of 2-8) setting where the instruction is specifically geared to them and their unique goals. This is a great way to shorten the learning curve. Small group lessons are ideal if you are a new student, a student of another martial art or are a current student simply wanting an edge in your training.
