What is Jiu Jitsu or BJJ

What is Jiu Jitsu?  At www.Subfightermma.com, we focus on Brazilian style of Jiu Jitsu, also known as: BJJ.  Our BJJ focus is no-gi jiu jitsu (or jiu jitsu without wearing a gi uniform). This means that we wear a regular pair of shorts and t-shirt, instead of the traditional gi uniform.  Subfighter Jiu Jitsu style is one that is not fixated on staying stagnant or “pure”, but rather is open to new adaptations… and constantly getting better. Subfighter is an academy that strives to train strong foundations, while also making new adaptations for a competitive edge. We use the same philosophy in training other martial arts such as Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, and MMA.

Here is some information from Wikipedia, for a broader explanation:

Brazilian jiu-jitsu (/dʒuːˈdʒɪtsuː/; Portuguese: [ˈʒiw ˈʒitsu], [ˈʒu ˈʒitsu], [dʒiˈu dʒiˈtsu]) (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was brought to Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda (1878-1941), a student of Kodokan Judo with a history of challenging and interacting with other combat arts.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense.[2] Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.

Training in the OC (Orange County, CA) has really expanded over the last 10 years… popularity of mixed martial arts stem from the excitement caused by the UFC, and the Subfighter MMA gym (see website at www.subfightermma.com) has benefitted from advertising on TV shows like Ultimate Fighter, Tapout as well as from local gyms such as LA Boxing and others which have created a buzz… There are so many gyms to choose from now too… but which is the right gym?
