BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) at Nakama

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that mainly focuses on ground fighting with the aim of gaining a dominant position and ensuring that the attacker/opponent taps off as quickly as possible.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) was developed by the Brazilian brothers, Carlos, Oswaldo, Gastao, Jorge and Helio Gracie, after Carlos came into contact with the Japanese Judo/Jiu Jitsu champion, Mitsuyo Maeda, who had settled in Brazil. The ability of Jiu Jitsu to effectively eliminate heavier opponents aroused the interest of Carlos Gracie. Because of this, they later developed their own self-defense system called Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Helio (the youngest brother) developed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a very effective fighting technique with a sporty aspect.

BJJ is therefore mainly known for the fact that a smaller and/or weaker person with the right techniques can defend themselves against a stronger and/or larger attacker and can eliminate them in an effective way. BJJ is therefore accessible to everyone regardless; age, weight, height, male or female.

The continuous repetition of exercises, techniques and sparring play an important role in these lessons. Think of the skills to successfully get an opponent to the ground, to control them and then to knock them off in various ways.

Nakama Gym recently joined the European Grappling & JiuJitsu Federation (EGJJF), a partnership of several gyms in Europe that follow the philosophy of Rickson Gracie. This makes it possible to take various EGJJF exams and to continue to develop and challenge yourself with a possible new degree/band as a reward.
