Jiu-Jitsu originated in medieval Japan (around 792 AD) where soldiers of the various Warlords used it to defend themselves against both armed and unarmed attackers. It was also used to overpower a potentially much stronger attacker and restrain or incapacitate them until help arrived. Jiu-Jutsu is well suited to the individual who appreciates being able to turn away an attacker with minimal use of force.

Most Jiu-Jitsu programs are goal oriented with specific standards that must be met before advancing to the next rank. Each successive rank is increasingly more challenging. You will discover that through a gradual process your fitness level will be increased regardless of prior athletic ability.

Jiu-Jitsu is very effective. If you don't believe me take a look at Frabicio Werdum. He was a Pan American Jiu Jitsu gold medalist and now is favored in nearly every UFC fight he is in. He's not the only MMA fighter who is a black belt. BJ Penn and Demian Maia are world champions in Jiu Jitsu. You can look at a detailed list of notable practitioners here.

Once again, we are glad you are considering learning more about Jiu-Jitsu and look forward to a positive experience with you.
