Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and sport that historically teaches a smaller opponent how to defend him or herself against a larger attacker by using leverage and perfectly executed technique. Think of it like wrestling but with joint manipulation and chokes. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was popularized by Royce Gracie and the UFC in the early 1990s and has since evolved to be one of the most popular martial arts in the world.
