Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling based martial art that teaches you how to control a resisting opponent and force them to submit, or “tapout.” It is a great way to get in shape, lose weight, and build confidence. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is so effective because it doesn’t require size or strength. Instead, a smaller, weaker person can use angles, leverage, and proper technique to defeat a larger opponent.

Once control is established over your opponent, many different types of submission holds can be applied such as chokes, armbars, shoulder locks, and leglocks. Submissions are what makes Jiu-Jitsu so different and special compared to other marital arts. The effectiveness of these techniques in real world situations is why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is recognized as the most effective martial art in the world!


Submission grappling is the “no-gi” version of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu; meaning there is no kimono (gi) worn during training. Instead, participants wear a rashguard or T-shirt and shorts or pants. Submission grappling in many ways is similar to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Sambo, and Judo. There are many similar techniques, submission holds, and positions, just without the ability to grab your training partner’s clothing.

Submission grappling is sometimes referred to as: submission fighting, submission wrestling, grappling, or no-gi jiu-jitsu. It is great for self-defense and is an excellent physical activity for getting in peak condition. We recommend training Submission grappling as a supplement to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training. This allows you to learn the intricate details of training with the gi, but without always relying on the grips.
