Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. This BJJ class is taught by SBG UK Bradford coach & UK Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion Mark 'Spenna' Spencer. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller person can successfully defend against a bigger assailant by using proper technique, leverage. Most notably, Brazilian Jiu jitsu is known for taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent. In BJJ, sparring and live drilling play a major role in training.
