Bjj advocates the concept that a smaller weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments in self-defense situations. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training and the practitioner’s development. Bjj is considered a martial art, sport, method of promoting physical fitness and building character, and a way of life. – Wikipedia
