Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art which utilises close range grappling techniques and takedowns to obtain a superior position on an opponent with the goal of finishing the fight using a submission (joint lock or choke).
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is excellent for self-defense, fitness or as a hobby. It is also a necessity for any modern MMA fighter and beyond that it is also a sport in itself with numerous national, European and Worldwide competitions.
