Q. WHAT IS GRACIE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU?
“Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu” began with Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese Jiu-Jitsu master and member of the Kodokan. Maeda emigrated to Brazil in the 1910s where an influential businessman named Gastão Gracie helped him get established. In return for his aid, Maeda taught the fighting art to Gastão’s son Carlos Gracie, who then taught the art to his brothers and sons. When Maeda taught the art to the Gracies he called it Jiu-jitsu. The Gracie family refined this art form into what is now known as Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The Redzovic family has trained with the Gracie family in Brazil and are certified to teach the art to YOU!
Q. WHAT MAKES GRACIE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MARTIAL ARTS?
Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu differs from other martial arts in that it provides solutions for all possible stages of combat, it is the COMPLETE self defense system. Other disciplines typically focus on striking and rely on a person’s strength and speed to deliver damage, but speed and strength doesn’t matter when you’re on your back. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu differs from other martial arts fundamentally. While other martial arts rely heavily on strength and speed,
Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu relies on superior technique and leverage.
Q. IS JIU JITSU SAFE?
Safety is paramount at Team Redzovic schools. Accidents may happen, however, lack of seriousness during training and careless application of technique contribute greatly to risk of injury. Careless practice is disrespectful to the spirit of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is not tolerated in our programs.
