Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit.

Before I found BJJ, I would try different things. I would try running and different kinds of exercises to kind of get myself in shape. And I never found that excitement and that kind of passion until I found martial arts. You know this addition in my life of BJJ has changed my life 100%. Not only physically that I feel a bit more capable, you know I can defend myself.

27 year old Sandra Riley Tang

BJJ is a completely different type of exercise and a lot of it is about learning how to control your energy and breathe properly. It definitely reduced my stress levels and enabled me to keep a calm, focused mind under pressure, as well as realize my limitations. And I think that training in martial arts has really helped me in all aspects of my working life.

BJJ helps me to become a better person, especially in growing into adulthood. Every important thing in my life such as discipline, respect, self-confidence, and courage has been learned from BJJ. EVOLVE taught me a lot of things to improve myself. I already trained BJJ for about 14 years, but I still learn a lot of things from the instructors at EVOLVE since they are World Champion instructors.

More Information On Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting. It focuses on the skill of controlling your opponent and applying techniques that force him or her to submit. Most of the techniques learned in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu concentrate on taking your opponent down to the ground and keeping them there, enabling you to attack for submissions. Studies show that 95% of street fights end up on the ground, making Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu one of the most effective, real-life fighting systems on the planet.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu enables the smaller, weaker practitioner to use leverage, grip, and position to overcome a bigger and stronger opponent. It is a highly technical martial art that not only provides its students with a deeper understanding of the workings and limits of the human body, but also equips them with problem solving skills and greater body awareness.
