Jiu Jitsu has a long heritage, while developed in Brazil has it's root grounded in Japan on the Samurai Battle fields. Our Nation spans the world!
The BJJ story begins in Japan, where an early form of Jiu-Jitsu (also called Ju-Jitsu) was developed for use on the field of battle by Japanese samurai. These warriors, who engaged in armed battles on horseback, developed Jiu-Jitsu as the last line of defense in the event that they found themselves disarmed and afoot.
However, the heavy armor worn by the samurai restricted their mobility, making chokes, joint locks, and throws preferable to striking techniques. Over time, Japanese Jiu-Jitsu branched off into a number of different styles, and eventually to Brazil in 1914 when Maeda traveled to Brazil, where he befriended a businessman named Gastão Gracie. The rest as they say is history.
