Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu • Kombat Group

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art which favours skill over strength. This makes it suitable for everyone regardless of age, size or gender.

BJJ ACADEMY

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a modern martial art which was born when Japanese master Mitsuyo Maeda travelled to Brazil in 1916. There, he started teaching his ground fighting skills to Carlos Gracie who later passed it on to his brothers. Hélio, being the smallest and weakest of the brothers, had difficulties adapting the techniques. Therefore, he began to make adjustments until they could be applied by anyone, regardless of size or strength.

The Gracie brothers continued together to develop this new version of the martial art which is free from the strict rules of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. What they named BJJ is now one of the most complete forms of self-defence. It is also great for fitness as it focusses on strength, endurance, joint mobility and balance. Being skilled in BJJ is also considered indispensable for all MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) athletes.

What Martial Arts Should I Learn?

You have so much to gain from learning a martial art! You will increase your confidence and self-control while improving your overall health and fitness. Plus, martial arts teach you to control and defend yourself in tough situations which is critical to avoid injuries. There are many other benefits as well, both physical and mental.

Though this training camp is rooted in Muay Thai instruction and fight preparation, we recognize the value of cross-training in various martial arts to develop well-rounded individuals and skills. Combining BJJ with one or more of the other martial arts we offer (Boxing, MMA, Krav Maga, or Muay Thai) is possible and our facility is well-equipped and large enough to accommodate training in all of these disciplines.

BJJ or Muay Thai?

BJJ is mostly a ground sport and the health benefits of the training include weight loss, muscle gain, increased flexibility, stronger mental focus, stress relief, and so much more. Muay Thai is a stand up martial art that uses punches, kicks, knees, and elbows in various combinations to develop all of the above benefits. Try them both and pick the one that suits you better!

BJJ or Boxing?

Again, the main difference is the level where you fight: on the ground or standing up. Combining both of the disciplines gives you more complete training for your personal growth, as well as for your self-defence techniques and your fighting knowledge.

BJJ or MMA?

BJJ is a big part of the MMA preparation. Competing in MMA without knowing Jiu Jitsu techniques will be very dangerous! Here you have the opportunity to train in both of them, learning the small details that you need to be the best!

BJJ or Krav Maga?

Both of them are great as self-defence disciplines. Most of the Krav Maga ground techniques were developed starting from proper Jiu Jitsu movements. Whereas during Krav Maga you will learn how to defend yourself from both armed and unarmed attackers, during BJJ you will learn how to use your body against the attackers, regardless of size!
