"A martial art becomes a sport when it ignores the reality of a real life attack.  When it ignores your opponent's size and weight.  When it is bound by time limits... when it ignores biting, head-butting, hair grabbing, punching and kicking.  When it ignores the fact that there are no mats on the street.  When it ignores the power of a soft answer."

Jorge Jiménez

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Balance Academy

Gracie/ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsuis a highly effective martial art and self-defense system with roots in Rio deJaneiro, Brazil.  It was specificallydesigned to allow a smaller, weaker person to defend him or herself effectivelyagainst a much bigger and stronger attacker in a real life attack. 

Unlike Kick Boxing and otherstriking arts, Jiu-Jitsu does not rely on punching and kicking to survive orwin the fight.  Instead, we manage thedistance to prevent the punch and eventually bring the fight to theground.  On the ground, by relying onleverage, technique and timing, we establish a superior position and applysubmission holds such as joint locks and chokes. 

Jiu-Jitsu (Japanese forGentle Art) can be practiced by anyone regardless of age, gender or physicalfitness.
