[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective forms of self-defence, a safe and fun sport to learn and a great form of physical and mental training.

A grappling-centric art, the goal of BJJ is to take your opponent to the ground, control them positionally. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also features finishing techniques called “submissions”, which include join locks and chokes. With an emphasis on technique and leverage, BJJ is designed to allow a smaller person defeat a stronger foe with ease.

BJJ is often described as a game of “physical chess” due to it’s depth and technical nature. It’s an excellent sport to train your child’s physical skills as well as their mental attributes and problem solving abilities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]13419092_10157022724995282_1219049200794101793_n
