"What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Jiu Jitsu is translated as gentle art/soft art.
The term “gentle art” was to convey the guiding idea that lies beneath all Jiu- Jitsu, both classical Japanese and modern Brazilian – the idea of using one’s own strength in the most efficient way. Rather than resisting force with force, the idea is to yield to force and then use an opponent’s strength against him, using efficient technique in an intelligent fashion to overcome raw strength and aggression – this is the philosophical core of jiu-jitsu."
Basically, grappling and learning how to leverage the other person's strength against them. How to get up after someone knocks you down and how to out-think your opponent.
