Teen & Adult Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting as a self defense. Jiu-Jitsu has recently become more popular and is noted to be one of the fastest growing MMA sports in the United States. The concept of BJJ is that smaller people who are not as strong can defend themselves against a larger, stronger opponent. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial artists are able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent.

Ends Fights Quickly
In BJJ, there’s no B.S. The goal of all Brazilian Jiu Jitsu altercations is to end the fight as quickly and efficiently as possible. So how is it done? BJJ pairs intense moves with pushing, pulling, and pinning techniques – creating a fight that will take your attacker by surprise. Oh, and BJJ’s submission methods are no joke. They include the arm lock, triangle choke, heel hook, bow and arrow choke, elbow lock, and neck crank. These are to be used as soon as you’re able to bring your attacker to the ground, quickly subduing them and allowing you to escape. In addition, BJJ often allows for a non-violent submission, if that is what the situation calls for.

If you’ve ever watched a traditional Jiu Jitsu match, you were probably witnessing Gi Jiu Jitsu! Gi Jiu Jitsu is most identifiable by the clothing worn – a kimono, pants, and a belt. But this clothing is about more than looks. It actually changes the way the martial art is practiced! In Gi Jiu Jitsu you can grab your opponent’s clothes during grappling, which contributes to a slower pace that leaves you with more time to think through your next move.
When practicing No-Gi Jiu Jitsu, you’ll shed your thick Gi and pants for stretchy athletic wear, such as shorts and a rash guard. Without the lapel and collar of a Gi to grab hold of, No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is much faster and requires quick thinking. While it’s up for you to decide, many feel that No-Gi BJJ is better when it comes to preparing for real-life altercations

By creating a bond of trust and reciprocation, you and your grappling partner can then practice various techniques on each other and see what works or doesn’t work. This martial art cannot be learned based solely on the use of paddles or punching bags. Members at Aguilera BJJ Studio have become close friends and help each other refine their skills and reach their goals.
Made for Real Life
While many other martial art disciplines are striking arts (like Karate and Tae Kwon Do), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art. At first glance, this doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But in practice, it changes everything. In real life, most fights end up on the ground. This means that all of those kicks and punches you mastered may not be as helpful as you’d hoped. Meanwhile, BJJ is all about ground work. Instead of relying on strikes, BJJ primarily utilizes submission holds, chokes, take-downs, counters, and finishing techniques. After all, once a fight is moved to the ground, it’s much easier to gain control over your opponent.
