Living Sword Bjj

Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, popularly known as BJJ, is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian jiu-jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting fundamentals that were taught to Carlos Gracie and Luiz França by Mitsuyo Maeda and Soshihiro Satake. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Hélio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge on to their extended family. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique and leverage.

Like with all that we do at Living Sword and our extended family and partnerships in the martial arts, this program is a family. Through shared effort, encouragement and achievement you will build lasting friendships and champions who will be in your corner no matter what.
