Why Choose Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu?

of Warwick NY

History of Jiu Jitsu

In 1914, a Japanese Jiu Jitsu expert named Mitsuyo Maeda arrived in Brazil in order to establish a Japanese immigrant community. While there, Maeda’s work was aided by a Brazilian businessman of Scottish descent named Gastao Gracie. In exchange for his friendship and hospitality, Maeda offered to teach Gracie’s son Carlos the Japanese martial art of Jiu-Jitsu. Carlos then taught the art to his brothers and in 1925 they opened their own Jiu-Jitsu academy in Brazil.

Jiu Jitsu Belts

The Brazilian jiu-jitsu ranking system is a means of signifying a practitioner's increasing levels of technical knowledge and practical skill within the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Colored belts that are worn as part of the uniform are awarded to the practitioner.

The Gracie Family

Over the years, the Gracie family refined the art of Jiu-Jitsu, modifying it through countless challenge matches and street fights, and decided to call their art “Gracie Jiu-Jitsu” (also called “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu”, or “BJJ”, today). The emphasis was on taking the opponent to the ground where the techniques of the art, with its efficient use of leverage, could be applied. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on the use of positional hierarchy on the ground, as well as the use of joint locks and chokes.

Jiu Jitsu Gi

The origin of the uniform starts over 100 years ago, all the way from Japan. The founder of Judo, Jigoro Kano decided that he needed to create a uniform for his students. He needed something that would show uniformity among those training Judo, but something that would be able to take a beating from the constant throwing, pinning and choking techniques of the art.
