Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), which is also known as Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting.

It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique; most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. RI Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) or Rhode Island Gracie jiu jitsu (RI BJJ) training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi), mixed martial arts (RI MMA) competition or self-defense.

Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training. A premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through the grades/belts. (source Wikipedia.org)

Rhode Island Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi

What is a Brazilian jiu jitsu gi? The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner's gi is similar to a judogi, but with tighter cuffs on the pants and jacket. This allows the practitioner to benefit from a closer fit, providing less material for an opponent to manipulate. As is the case with judo, the term Brazilian jiu jitsu kimono is sometimes used to describe the outfit.
