Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant.
