Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Fighting Style, Concepts And Principles

MALP

Many of today's martial arts are those which have branched out from a single ancient or traditional martial art. Okinawan Kenpo, for example, developed into Shuri-Te, Naha-Te and Tomari-Te, which then gave way to the development of modern Karate, which branched out into different other forms. Jiujitsu is another example of a traditional martial art that branched out into some other forms, Brazilian Jiujitsu being one of those.

True to its roots, Brazilian Jiujitsu is a martial art system whose way of fighting are centered on grappling, throwing and ground fighting. Jiujitsu was originally developed to fight against armed and armored opponents and perhaps in the same sense, one of Brazilian Jiujitsu's principles teach that a smaller, weaker person can defent a bigger, stronger opponent by using strategy and technique. This is why joint-locks and chockeholds are part of the main arsenal of techniques of Brazilian Jiujitsu.

The emphasis on ground fighting is one of the practices that make Brazilian Jiujitsu different from a lot of other martial arts. The aim is usually to find a way to bring the fight on the ground where the practitioner can sit straight down on or wrap his limbs around the opponent and maneuver them in such a way to make it possible for submission holds, locks and grips. The science behind this is that the position of being on the ground and lower than your opponent can offset a "bigger, stronger" person's strength, which is suitable for the supposed "smaller, weaker" practitioner of Brazilian Jiujitsu. With this set-up, it all boils down to strategic use of one's body and anatomy to put the right pressure on the right parts at the right time to achieve desired results.

Due to its ground fighting specialty, Brazilian Jiujitsu has also become popular among Mixed Martial Arts practitioners who call this strategy "ground and pound". The fighter finds a way to bring the opponent down on the ground either by gripping the opponent or strategically dropping their guard as a bait for the opponent to attack and be open for being wrapped. The next move is to either proceed with locks and holds or hit the opponent in an all-out assault while sitting on top of him.

However, Brazilian Jiujitsu is not only centered on fighting as a competition or sport. Most practitioners of Jiujitsu chose to train under this style for self-defense. Since it relies more on mechanical strength and strategy of a person than physical strength, smaller and weaker people aren't in that much of or sometimes not even in any kind of disadvantage against larger and stronger assailants. Aside from that, ground fighting is not all that common, which makes it difficult for a random street assailant to defend against.

Brazilian Jiujitsu is also used in public security and is practiced by police officers, security guards and professional bodyguards as a form of defense. This is because unlike other styles, Brazilian Jiujitsu has a lot of techniques and moves that are specialized for submission.
