Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an art based in ground fighting. Along with this, it teaches takedowns, takedown defense, ground control, and especially submissions. Submissions refer to holds that either cut off an opponents air supply (chokes) or look to take advantage of a joint (such as armbars).

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighters look to take their opponents to the ground. When on top they generally hope to escape their opponents guard and move to either side control (positioned across an opponents chest) or the mount position (sitting over their ribs or chest). From there, depending on the situation, they may choose to continually strike their opponent or set up a submission hold.

When on their backs, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighters are very dangerous. From the guard various submission holds can be employed. They may also seek to turn their opponent over in an attempt to reverse their fortunes.

Jiu Jitsu Testimonial

"I have been training with gracie barra scotland for about three years. I started with fitness training but became interested in the jiu jitsu through the fitness training. Since starting training here I have lost three stones in weight, become fitter than I ever thought I could be at the age of 46 and won a silver and bronze medal in jiu jitsu competition. I couldn't recommend this training enough."
