Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sports system that focuses on ground fighting and submission wrestling techniques. By utilising sweeps, passes and control positions BJJ aims to evade an incoming attack, control and then submit an opponent by applying chokes and joint locks.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against bigger, stronger opponents through the use of timing, leverage and technique.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the fastest growing sport in the world.
It has roots tracing back to the Ancient Greek Olympics in the form of pankration (a no rules fighting contest). However, in modern times its resurgence can be attributed to the UFC, which started in the 90’s.
Originally MMA was ‘martial art vs martial art’, over the last 20 years the sport has evolved into a fusion of several of the most effective and proven martial arts. MMA is now a discipline of its own.
Developed in the 16th century in Thailand, Muay Thai is known as the ‘art of eight limbs’ in reference to its eight points of contact used for striking.
The techniques involved in Muay Thai encompass strikes with punches, kicks, knees and elbows. Muay Thai was developed during Thailand’s war with Burma where it’s primary objective was to aid Thai soldiers when they lost their weapons during warfare.
The techniques were developed on a foundation of simple body movements with maximum effectiveness.
Muay Thai is one of the main striking disciplines used in MMA as seen in the UFC.
Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling-type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds. A wrestling bout is a physical competition, between two (occasionally more) competitors or sparring partners, who attempt to gain and maintain a superior position.
There are a wide range of styles with varying rules with both traditional historic and modern styles. Wrestling techniques have been incorporated into other martial arts as well as military hand-to-hand combat systems.
