Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes in Kirkland
Brazilian jiu-jitsu, also called BJJ or Brazilian jiu jitsu, is a really fun and practical martial art with an interesting history. All martial arts attempt to solve the problems of self defense against a wide array of opponents and BJJ is no different.
BJJ was adapted from Japanese jiu-jitsu in Brazil in the early part of the 20th century. It was built to solve the riddle of how a smaller and weaker person can overcome a larger and stronger opponent through leverage and technical skill. As an art it really shines when a fight ends up on the ground, as many inevitably do. By controlling positions you are taught to apply chokes, arm and leg locks, sweeps and reversals.
To a new person it may sound a bit intimidating but once you learn the basics it is endlessly fascinating, practical and a physical and mental game of chess that is never boring and a great workout.
BJJ has since gone on to become one of the most popular sports in the world and is practiced by men and women of all ages and abilities around the world.
We have a proud lineage as Black Belt come from legendary competitor and coach Alexander Ribeiro.
