Why train Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Self-Defense?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting as self-defense. BJJ has recently become more popular and is noted to be one of the fastest-growing mixed-martial art (MMA) sports in the United States. The concept of BJJ is centered around the idea of a smaller, less strong opponent defending themselves against a larger, stronger opponent. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, the BJJ practitioner is able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent or attacker. Here at Underground Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we specialize in bringing BJJ to our clientele via the Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Curriculum formulated for children, teens, & adults.
