Silanoe Martial Arts offers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or in short BJJ. It has proven to be the most effective Martial Art. Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling art focusing on grips and leverage to overcome a physically stronger opponent. It’s a sophisticated fighting art commonly referred to as human chess. In Jiu-Jitsu competition, both athletes start standing and usually at one point continue their match on the ground. Competitors seek positional control and attempt to subdue the opponent. If a competitor is able to successfully apply a joint lock or choke hold, he or she will win the match. The successful application of a joint lock or choke hold is called a submission. It’s the main goal in Jiu-Jitsu. While a multitude of Martial Arts contains concepts of leverage, Jiu-Jitsu is where this truly displays.

Jiu-Jitsu history

First of all, grappling has always been a part of history. One can trace it back to ancient Greece. By the end of the 19th century, a man by the name of Misuyo Maeda traveled the world. He would showcase the effectiveness of his fighting art by challenging any man. After traveling the world extensively, Maeda settled in Brazil and began teaching Jiu-Jitsu. As a result, the Gracie family members became students of him. Carlos and his younger Helio would adapt techniques by Maeda to suit their bodies. Jiu-Jitsu, as we know today, was then established.

Jiu-Jitsu vs. other martial arts

Later on, the Gracie family was led by a similar quest. They were eager to prove that Jiu-Jitsu was the most effective fighting art. Son of Helio, Royce Gracie, entered the Ultimate Fighting Championship(UFC). Despite Royce Gracie being only 180 lbs. he was still able to beat all his opponents. Those were fighters considerably heavier than him. Hence proving the effectiveness of Jiu-Jitsu. Read more about the history of Jiu-Jitsu here.
