Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone! Men, women, and children as young as four years old can begin learning the disciplined art of BJJ. Jiu-Jitsu is commonly known as a “gentle” art because it allows smaller, weaker people to use leverage against larger opponents. Jiu-Jitsu also sharpens the mind as it heavily utilizes strategy and technique to beat your opponent. In a sense, it is a “game of human chess” implementing hundreds of concepts and techniques that you learn through training.
