BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu evolved from Kodokan Judo ground fighting (Ne-Waza) fundamentals that were taught to Carlos Gracie by Master Mitsuyo Maeda. Five Points Academy is proud to be the NYC home of Workshop BJJ.
