ABOUT AOS STUDIO
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, a sport, a self-defence art, a fitness class, a way of life and many things to different people. Brazilian jiu jitsu is a ground based grappling martial art, where a smaller person can have the advantage over a much heavier opponent using proper technique and leverage to force them into submission.
For this very reason the art is now fast spreading world wide since it’s humble beginnings in Rio De Janeiro, BJJ gained much popularity after its open challenge to all fighters and other martial arts on the early days of the UFC, creating a new combat sport in the process now known as mixed martial art or more commonly MMA.
However unlikely, since it’s early days, BJJ has developed into many other things; for example as a new and regulated sport with different global federations, or more common in modern times is that for many people Bjj is a fun and sociable way to stay fit.
