Jiu Jitsu, translated “gentle art”, is a complex grappling martial art that has garnered a lot of respect in recent years. With the foundation of the UFC, Jiu Jitsu was seen be be an incredibly effective virtually dominant martial art.
Instead of striking an opponent to the point of knockout, Jiu Jitsu relies on the one’s ability to choke or break the joints of an opponent. Early in the UFC a smaller, lighter fighter reigned supreme using only Jiu Jitsu. This all-out dominance has changed, but the efficacy of the art and the importance of it’s use can be witnessed in all mixed martial arts fighting today,
