Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu • $20.00

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo and Jujutsu in the early 20th century. Both BJJ and Judo are martial arts that developed into sport, allowing those practicing them to train with an emphasis on physical fitness, character and a way of life (Do).


Just as in Japanese style jujutsu, BJJ promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a larger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi), mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.


At Atlanta Budokan, our focus on BJJ is for fitness, self-defense and sport grappling tournaments.
