Description

Brazilian jiu jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that emphasizes ground grappling. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are largely negated if wrestling on the ground. Hence the huge success of Brazlian jiu jitsu fighters in mixed martial arts competitions.This book goes back to basics explaining the rules and regulations, scoring, basic principles of control, space, weight, leverage, sensitivity, timing and defence, movements on the ground, positions, common escapes, basic submission techniques and the sport aspects of Brazilian jiu jitsu.
