Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.
Jiu-jitsu recognizes that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are suppressed when grappling on the ground. Brazilian jiu-jitsu emphasizes getting an opponent to the ground to use ground fighting techniques, and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds. On the ground, physical strength is not as effective as a grappler who knows how to maximize force using mechanical advantage.
