Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint locks and choke holds. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are largely negated if wrestling on the ground – and if either fighter wants the fight to go to the ground, it will. Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers (and counter-maneuvers) are available to manipulate the opponent into suitable position for the application of a submission hold. This system of maneuvering and manipulation can be likened to a form of kinetic chess when utilized by two experienced practitioners. A submission hold is the equivalent of checkmate.
We are located at 31 Vine St Middleboro, MA 02346 and have an affiliate location in Taunton at 30 Main St Taunton, MA 02780.
