Brazilian Jujitsu Techniques and Jiu-Jitsu Moves

The Brazilian Jujitsu techniques and moves contained in this sections are what have become known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. A variation on ju jitsu modified by Helio Gracie in Brazil.

Over 95% of street fights finish on the ground, hence ground-fighting skills are extremely important for self-defense. Taking an attacker to the ground eliminates around 80% of their arsenal, leaving you in a perfect position to finish the fight. Of course if there is more than one attacker, taking the fight to the ground is one of the worst moves imaginable for obvious reasons.

Royce Gracie showed the world the relative effectiveness of ground-fighting in the first 5 Ultimate Fighting Championships held in the United States. This tournament accepts any martial artists from any style to battle it out in the ring to prove their skills against other fighting styles.

This section will show you several Brazilian Jujitsu techniques and positions you may find yourself in whilst ground-grapping, including finishing techniques, counters, escapes and take-downs.

As with any Ju-Jitsu technique, be extremely careful whilst practising these moves with a partner. Sometimes just an inch of movement can break a bone or cause someone to fall unconscious.

No responsiblity is accepted for injury or even death of anyone using this site for unsupervised training.
