Why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
BJJ is founded on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to neutralized your opponent. In many other forms you may learn the broad concepts, poses and overall techniques. In jiu jitsu you will learn the actual detailed application of the art in real life situations with a much lower risk of impact injury. It is why Brazilian jiu jitsu is called "the gentle art".
