Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) was born in Rio de Janeiro. It is a martial art, combat sport and self-defence system that focuses on grappling and specially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend himself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage and most notably, taking the fight to the ground and then applying joint-locks and chokes hold to defeat the other person.
Mixed Martial Arts is a full-contact combat that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts. The combat sport of "Vale Tudo" was developed in Brazil starting in the 1920's and was taken to the United States by the Gracie family in 1993 with the founding of the Ultimate Fight Championship.
