Jiu-Jitsu, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as it is commonly named outside Brazil, is a grappling orientated martial art/combat sport that evolved from its Japanese roots in 1920s Brazil, and continued to evolve for many decades after until its present format.

This style though previously established in its native country became highly popular in the northern hemisphere after a series of cage-fighting performances from BJJ representative Royce Gracie in the early UFC’s (Ultimate Fighting Championship) where he battled against competitors from many different martial arts backgrounds in the no holds barred tournament, becoming the fighting promotion’s first champion. This event proved Jiu Jitsu’s efficiency and helped raise awareness to this combat form all around the world, becoming one of the reasons behind the sport’s growth.
