Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Basic Techniques
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a Brazilian Martial Art, a type of Jiu-Jitsu that is practiced in Brazil, as it was imported by Mitsuyo Ma+-da and later developed by the Gracie family. It's a young martial art and is still evolving from it's Japanese Jiu-Jitsu roots. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is ground wrestling that can be practiced with or without a kimono. Each completing technique ends with either a choke or a dislocation (nape, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle) and with no joint twisting. Contrary to most martial arts that favor standing fights with fist and feet strikes, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on ground fight, which is a very technical realm in which size matters much less. Experience shows that street fighting between two opponents often end on the ground. Languages: French - English - German - Spanish - Portuguese. Extra features: Photo gallery - trailers.
