Rated 'Excellent' ★★★★★


Gracie Jiu Jitsu (also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ) is a proven system of self-defence designed to empower the weak against the strong. Consisting of striking techniques, throws, takedowns and ground grappling, the basic premise is that with the right technique, timing and leverage someone can at the very least defend themselves and survive against a larger, stronger opponent.
