THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU PHILOSOPHY
Some of the core values of the Gracie Brazlian jiu jitsu. Much more than a martial art, jiu jitsu is a way of life.
The ability to perform with maximum output given minimal input. It is always presumed your attacker will be larger, so you will learn how to get the most out of yourself while conserving your own energy.
In a conflict with a larger opponent, patience is frequently the path to success. It often happens that the least exhausted person wins, and not the strongest person.
The aim of a fight is to impose dominance over your opponent, after which they quickly surrender. This is achieved with control, both over the opponent and yourself.
Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Gracie Brazlian Jiu Jitsu is much more than a martial art. It’s a way of life relying on the principles of efficiency, patience and control.
The aim is not only to acquire the self-defense skills to overpower a much larger opponent, but also to perfect yourself in the process and achieve success in all aspects of life.
