What is Jiu-Jitsu?
Shortly put, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective self-defense martial art for one-on-one combat scenarios. You can find its roots in old Japan when it was competing against Judo, the most widespread fighting art at the time. After a long and complex history, it finally reached the shores of Brazil, where, in the hands of the Gracie family, it took off as the most effective combat system in the world.
The Gracies popularized it through their open combat challenges to prove its effectiveness and reliability in even the most adverse situations. At the core of the art lies Helio Gracie’s most ardent desire – to develop a combat system allowing a smaller, weaker individual to dominate a larger and stronger one using technique alone to bypass the latter’s strength.
Jiu Jitsu’s resounding success in the early 90s during UFC 1 and its worldwide adoption ever since are proofs that his ambitions have reached and even exceeded his goals.
Is Jiu-Jitsu effective in real-life scenarios?
Yes, it is. If you seek to learn a martial art with real-life usefulness, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Long Island is the perfect choice. Nothing else comes close when discussing separate martial arts, neither boxing, taekwondo, judo, etc., for one simple reason – Jiu-Jitsu masters the ground fight. If you can’t defend yourself against takedowns and have no idea how to protect yourself while on the ground, an experienced Jiu-Jitsu practitioner will make easy work of you.
Unlike other martial arts, Jiu-Jitsu also has a system to prove its own effectiveness, as it became obvious with the famous Gracie challenges that you can find all over the internet. This is the live sparring system that has you practice your defense and offense against fully resistant opponents. It is currently the only martial art allowing you to use all your strength and abilities during the sparring sessions, unlike boxing, for instance, where KOing your sparring partners constantly won’t get you far in your training.
Who can do Jiu-Jitsu?
In one word – everyone. Our sessions for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Long Island are ideal for both kids and adults, with pretty much no age limit. Jiu Jitsu’s beauty is that you don’t need to be in shape, fast, strong, or athletic to practice it. These will come gradually with time. You only need commitment, passion, and an open mind, and Jiu-Jitsu will do the rest for you.
