Gracie Jiu Jitsu was first made famous in the early 1990s when Royce Gracie won the first ever Ultimate Fighting Championships. The general public saw for the first time, here in the United States, what the legendary Helio Gracie had been teaching his family about the ancient art of Jiu Jitsu.
Rather than use strikes (kicks, punches, etc.) to win a real fight, Jiu Jitsu teaches the practitioner to use submission holds, defensive positioning and leverage as the means to defeating even a much larger opponent regardless of one’s size.
JiJitsu has become the most popular martial art on the planet in this past decade. Jiu Jitsu is very popular for all age levels, women and men alike.
