Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and sport that focuses on both standing grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint locks and holds to control an opponent. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant.
The Gracie family BJJ style emphasizes self-defense as well as
the competitive sport aspects. Relson Gracie's street defense techniques are extremely efficient and practical.
