Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ

The Columbia University Brazialian Jiu Jitsu Club has been home to thousands of students looking to stay safe, get in shape, and make new friends. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art focused on control and submission. Through a strong foundation based on positional hierarchy and body mechanics, it is designed to be the best means of gaining and maintaining control over a resisting opponent, while exposing opportunities for counter-attack. Combining the use of throws, takedowns, joint locks, chokes, and refined core body movement, the BJJ practitioner learns how to escape from an inferior position into a dominant one. It′s a lot of fun, great exercise, useful for self-defense, and an awesome way to challenge yourself and learn new things!
