BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
hello, we are the essex blades BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU club
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It utilizes natural body leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and, as a result, provides greater position for striking or submission holds.
How many teams do we have?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an individual sport but members have the opportunity to compete throughout the year.
We are a recently ratified sports club, set to resume training this academic year.
