What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. 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 therefore
make it a great sport for fitness and weight loss.
What is submission wrestling (No Gi)
Submission wrestling (also known as submission grappling, or simply as No-Gi), is a formula of competition
and a general term describing the aspect of martial arts and combat sports that focus on clinch and ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission using submission holds. The term "submission wrestling" usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a "jacket" or"gi."
The sport of submission wrestling brings together techniques from Folk Wrestling (Catch-as-catch-can),
Luta Livre Esportiva, Judo, Freestyle Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in mixed martial arts, Pankration, catch wrestling and others.
