A form of martial arts training, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a great combat sport that focuses on throwing, grappling, and ground fighting. This style is a derivative of the early 20th century Kodokan Judo, which is also a recently-developed system founded in 1882, and based on multiple schools of Japanese jujutsu. Like judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the principle that smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique; applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat an attacker.
