Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Is Our Specialty
100% of the fights start standing up… 90% hit the ground”
Over the course of hundreds of years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has evolved as its own specific form of martial arts. Its roots can be traced back to Japan where it was primarily seen as a component of judo. As it made its way to Brazil in the early 1900’s, jiu-jitsu was embraced and promoted as its own unique brand of fighting. The Gracie family of Brazil is credited for the creation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), as well as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
By definition, jiu-jitsu means “the gentle art”, or “the yielding art”. Essentially, it is a martial art that focuses on grappling techniques reminiscent to wrestling and ground fighting. It utilizes positional strategies and LEVERAGE, and is built on the belief that, regardless of size or strength, anyone can defeat their opponent by applying proper TECHNIQUE.
At SubForce BJJ we focus on this highly sophisticated, highly efficient, functional, simple-yet-complex ground fighting system. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu incorporates:
- Dominant control positions – holding/subduing an opponent down regardless of their size and strength
- Guards – offensive/defensive positions from your back or when seated
- Sweeps – reversals/turnovers from a guard position
- Escapes – techniques removing yourself from limb threatening submissions and dominant positions
- Submissions – the finish
It is the submission that ends the fight. There are hundreds of submissions, from arm bars, wrist locks, shoulder locks, chokes, cranks, knee bars, ankle locks, and MANY variations of each. We do not simply teach you the techniques, we instill the concept behind each movement so that you can create your own expression of jiu-jitsu. In every training session there is the potential to discover 50 new ways to do an arm bar! The essence and beauty of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu martial arts classes lie in the chaining of attacks; transitions to different positions. Excited yet? You should be!
