Brief History

[/fusion_text][fusion_text columns=”” column_min_width=”” column_spacing=”” rule_style=”default” rule_size=”” rule_color=”” class=”” id=””]

Jiu-jitsu basically means “Gentle Art”. It was practiced in Japan for a long period of time and it is often believed that the Gracie family from Brazil—through the help of Mitsuyo Maeda from Japan—practiced and developed the Kodokam Judo to modern Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
