What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a combat sport and martial art based on ground fighting and submission techniques. BJJ revolves around the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution. By taking the fight to the ground, smaller practitioners are able to use a number of holds and submissions to defeat the larger opponent.
