Beginners BJJ, Executive BJJ, No-GI BJJ, Intermediate BJJ, Advanced BJJ – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the core art taught at the Marra Senki Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the art that we teach as developed by the Gracie family of Brazil. Even though BJJ contains standup techniques for winning a fight, it is famous for its devastating ground fighting techniques. BJJ was specifically developed to allow a smaller person to defeat a larger person by sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations becomes the foundation for this fun martial art. BJJ is normally performed in a gi (kimono), which serves as a training tool and gives the student a greater element of control.
