Did you know that Brazilian jiujitsu (BJJ) has its origins in Japanese judo? Samurai warriors used judo for self-defense. In the early 1900s, judo masters brought the martial art to Brazil. Over time, the sport evolved into Brazilian jiujitsu, where the weight and height of the players are not as important as technique and strategy. With the proper training, practice, and equipment, BJJ is a safe way to stay in shape. Enter the Martial Arts Sports Zone to learn about the history, gear, moves, competitions, and top athletes connected to Brazilian jiujitsu. You'll discover: * Who the Gracie family is and how its members created BJJ. * What some of the top BJJ moves are, including the armbar and the rear naked choke. * How the U.S. Army uses BJJ in training for hand-to-hand combat. * What role BJJ has in mixed martial arts competitions worldwide. Are you into sports? Then get in the zone!
