Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that was originally developed to teach a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese jujutsu to create the art. It contains stand-up maneuvers, but it is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques. Gaining superior positioning — so one can apply the style’s numerous chokes, holds, locks, and joint manipulations on an opponent — is the key to BJJ.

NO-GI BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
Submission Wrestling (also known as submission fighting, submission grappling, sport grappling, or simply as no-gi) is a general term describing the aspect of martial arts and combat sports that focuses on the clinch and ground fighting, with the aim of obtaining submission holds. The term "submission wrestling" usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a "jacket" or "gi" or "combat kimono" often worn with belts that establish rank by color. Submission fighting is a major element involved with Mixed Martial Arts. Submission wrestlers or grapplers usually wear shorts, skin-sticky clothing such as rashguards, and mixed martial arts clothes that do not rip off in combat.
*At NOS BJJ & MMA you will learn BJJ with and without the gi. In No-Gi training you cannot grab your opponent’s uniform, therefore, you will learn the proper ways to control your opponent using a blend of BJJ and wrestling that does not require gripping the gi.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground. Techniques come from a variety of combat sports and martial arts, such as BJJ, wrestling, boxing, and kickboxing.
*At NOS BJJ & MMA we will teach you MMA in a safe setting to make you well rounded in stand up and ground techniques!
