Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting fundamentals. BJJ eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Hélio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge on to their extended family.

BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and then application of joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.

BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.

Krav Maga Institute’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is led by world champion Flavio Meier.
