What Is Jiu-Jitsu (aka BJJ)?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Is A Form Of Judo That Emphasizes Self Defense & Combat On The Ground

Made popular by the Gracie Family starting in 1925, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (first called "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu") has spread throughout the world. In large part, this is due to the success of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) - which was started by Rorion Gracie and his partners to demonstrate the superiority of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu over all other styles of martial arts.

After Royce Gracie became the first UFC champion, the world was put on notice that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was a fighting style that could defeat Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do, and Boxing simply by taking an opponent to the ground and finishing with a "submission hold" like a choke or armbar.

Carlson Gracie would later grow Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by implementing the group class structure that we practice at Jiu-Jitsu Outlet in Houston, Missouri. Before Carlson, sessions were typically only taught privately - and only the wealthy could afford to learn BJJ. Carlson changed the landscape by implementing group classes, allowing for sparring after class, and encouraging his students to compete regularly.

Today, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is practiced in just about every country around the world. Now, it has arrived in Houston, Missouri!

What Is Judo?

Judo Was Created As A Variation Of Japanese Battlefield Jujutsu That Could Be Practiced Safely By Anyone For Self-Defense, Sport, & Exercise

First created by Jigaro Kano in 1882, Judo has become one of the most popular martial arts and sports in the world. Judo is known for its beautiful throws, foot trips, and takedowns that work through technique and leverage instead of strength.

Fundamental to Judo are the falling techniques that are practiced in every class to ensure safety. Through regular training in proper falling mechanics, Judo practitioners (known as "Judoka") can learn how to injury-proof their bodies against trips and falls in all areas of life - on and off the mats.

Judo created an offspring when one of Jigaro Kano's students - Mitsuyo Maeda - began to teach the Gracie Family private Judo lessons. Carlson and Helio Gracie would modify the art of Judo into their own style and rename it "Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu".

At Jiu-Jitsu Outlet in Houston, Missouri, we teach that Judo and BJJ are two sides of the same coin. In our Judo classes, we focus on standup grappling techniques, takedowns, and throws. In BJJ class, we spend more time on the ground techniques like pins, armlocks, chokeholds, and leglocks.

To be a complete martial artist, you must be able to take your opponent to the ground (Judo) and finish the fight once you're there (Jiu-Jitsu).
