Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

Helio Gracie was the founderHelio Gracie laid down the foundations in an interesting way.  Gracie observed his older brothers learning traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.  He could not take part in the classes due to health concerns.  He was a small and frail child who wasn’t not going to develop into any sort of amazing physical specimen as a man.  What Helio Gracie lacked in natural physical prowess, he more than made up for in mental acuity.  His careful  study of the techniques his brothers were learning didn’t make itself  apparent for several years.  When it was finally revealed what Gracie had perfected, and in some cases invented, people flocked to his school.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses leverage and patience to beat your opponent.  Leverage enables a weaker opponent to beat a stronger opponent.  Patience allows a slower opponent to conserve energy and wait for the right moment to move on the faster opponent.  Indeed, Gracie made a career of winning no-holds-barred matches against fighters that were more physically gifted than him.  His contributions to the martial arts of second to none. 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has grown from this already solid foundation.  It has incorporated so many other techniques from Greco-Roman Wrestling, Free Style Wrestling, Sambo and Judo.  It has had so many great minds add to it.  Rolls Gracie, Royler Gracie, Eddie Bravo, Jean-Jacques Machado, Marcelo Garcia and so many more have given so much to this amazing martial art.  They all bring something new to the table.  You can become apart of this long tradition of learning and growing through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
