Learn About San Diego Jiu Jitsu Training
You might think that you have to be big and strong to be an effective fighter. The truth is that physical size is far less important when you have been properly trained in using leverage, technique and ground fighting skills to combat your opponent.
Jiu Jitsu is a Japanese martial art that officially began in the 1500s before being brought to Brazil. Today, many people are familiar with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and its use among many MMA fighters and its focus on ground fighting. Translated from Japanese, Jiu Jitsu means “the gentle art” because of its emphasis on using an opponent’s own power against them by utilizing tactical positioning, chokes and locks.
Jiu Jitsu Teaches Strategy and Community
Students of Jiu Jitsu can expect to learn a variety of useful fighting and grappling techniques like throws and submission holds like chokes, locks and other self-defense and ground fighting techniques. Sparring and live drills make it a realistic training environment for both amateur and competitive students alike.
Jiu Jitsu is a valuable tradition that can be used with other martial arts styles to provide students with a complete set of self-defense tools. No matter if you are looking to better protect yourself or your loved ones, get in great shape or compete at a high level, Jiu Jitsu techniques are critical to any functional mixed martial arts training program.
