Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), aka the gentle art, is here for you in Wollongong. The sport came into international prominence during the 1990’s when Brazilian proponents of the sport won tournaments against much larger opponents of various fighting styles and disciplines in the United Fighting Championship (UFC).
BJJ is non-impact grappling or ground fighting used to control and submit a resisting opponent. It involves closing the distance between your rival and using takedown techniques to take him/her to the ground and applying joint locks or choke holds. The essence of BJJ is to use mechanical advantage over strength to overcome another. Mental and physical challenges await you, as you seek to out-think and out-manoeuvre your opponent. It’s physical chess.
