Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
In 1915, Esai Maeda Koma (a Jigoro Kano Judo student) brought Judo from Japan to Brazil. Maeda trained Carlos Gracie. Carlos altered and adapted Judo to fit his family’s genectic strengths and weaknesses, thus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was born. First adopted by the US Army Rangers, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is now the preferred fighting style for all branches of the US Armed Forces. The most efficient ground fighting and grappling art available today, BJJ was developed to counteract differences in size and strength and is beneficial in all situations for self defense.
