Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - IMPACT Martial Arts Newmarket

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a form of martial arts coming from Brazil borrowed and expanded upon from the original Japanese Jiu Jitsu. BJJ is a fast paced grappling martial art where almost all of the fighting happens on the ground. This is very different from Karate and Kickboxing considering that there is not any striking, punching, or kicking. The art of BJJ emphasizes balance, weight distribution, and leverage.

BJJ is said to be one of the best martial arts to practise for self-defense purposes, as, it's aim is to immobilize the opponent using various throws, locks, and pins. This form of fighting can minimize the damage dealt by the attacker and defender while quickly eliminating the threat.

We offer three streams for our BJJ classes:
