About the Art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu originated in Brazil in the 1900s, although it was by way of Japan. In the early 1900s, Esai Maeda, a former Jujutsu champion in Japan who was now leader of a Japanese immigration convoy assigned to Brazil, befriended Gastao Gracie and taught his son Carlos. Carlos and his brothers, in turn, opened their martial arts school in 1925; his younger brother Helio adjusted the techniques to account for his smaller frame, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was then born! Helios' son eventually brought Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the United States in the 1980s, and it has been growing steadily more popular ever since. Unlike other martial arts styles, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches a smaller person ways they can defend themselves against a much larger opponent. While standing combat is also prevalent, this style is best known for its numerous chokes, holds, joint locks, and other manipulations designed to overpower an opponent.
