Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA Basic Training in Italy

You are invited to join this weekend's intensive training to learn the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and MMA in the Piedmont region, Italy. Potentially, this discipline is suitable for everyone, regardless of age, previous sports experiences, and physical preparation. The BJJ was created for the little ones, for those who have less strength. In fact, with practice, you will realize that the techniques you will learn will work on a whole series of people much heavier than you and above all stronger. Ready to take up a new skill?

BBJ (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu)

The BBJ was born in the early twentieth century in Brazil by the Gracie brothers, who had learned judo from the Japanese count Koma and modified it by creating an effective fighting system both in self-defense and in sports combat.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, often abbreviated in the English language acronym BJJ, is a martial art, a combat sport, and a method of self-defense that specializes in fighting, and in particular in ground combat, in order to use techniques of control and submission, including joint levers and strangulations.

Its use can also be applied to personal defense and in MMA or only for those who want to develop strength, endurance, flexibility, and motor coordination. Helps to lose weight and to have a good physical condition (muscles, development of cardiovascular and respiratory skills).

The fight on the ground allows, even to people of small build, to be able to face heavier aggressors. The specific movements of Jiu-jitsu are also excellent gymnastics that involves all the muscles of the body and is suitable for all although divided into levels.

BJJ is also known as the game of "human chess". It will teach you how to make the most of both physical strength and mental clarity and how to apply them. The BJJ represents the will, the desire to improve every day. BJJ is survival. You will find yourself in an uncomfortable position where you will suffer the weight of your opponent, your breathing will start to get labored and your mind will start to cloud. In those moments you will have to stay calm, make the right movements to recover your position, and start attacking again. If you think about it, this is what happens in everyday life.
