QUICK HISTORY TO BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Originally coming from Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu started gaining mainstream

popularity after first UFC tournament in 1993. Won by Royce Gracie - 3 fights all won by submission.

30 years later it is one of the fastest growing sports worldwide and the sport is now practised and taught as 

part of the school curriculum across Abu Dhabi along with police forces adopting it for its versality and control.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) enables a smaller player to utilise leverage in order to subdue and submit a stronger opponent. This was the founding element unique to BJJ when it was first envisaged by Helio Gracie whom many consider to be creator of what modern Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is today.
