In Japanese the word Jiu-jitsu means “The Gentle Art” but it has been proven again and again to be one of the most effective forms of fighting, regardless of one’s size or weight. Learning how to perform these techniques allows the student to force an opponent to surrender rather than injuring them unnecessarily. So in that respect, it can be considered gentle. However, the word “Jiu” could also be translated as “supple” or “soft” meaning that one learns to use their opponents’ force and strength against them to obtain a superior position, and then applies leverage to a weak spot. Students of BJJ must have care and consideration for their training partners as the techniques can be very dangerous if applied recklessly. Students are required to wear a uniform and have a mouthpiece for class. Please trim finger and toe nails, have long hair bound and remove all jewelry in preparation for class.
