Gracie Jiu Jitsu

For those of you who don't know, the Gracie family took an art known as Jiu Jitsu from the east (Japan, China) and made it their own. Called it Gracie Jiu Jitsu, better known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This is two of them sparring. Might wanna skip the boring "self defense" part, they spar at about half way though.

  6. Jiu jitsu, in particular GJJ, is something I've wanted to try for a while. I prefer Isshinryu karate, though.

  9. I love Jiu Jitsu...that's one thing UFC has done, really brought it into the limelight for the general public. The actual Jiu Jitsu tournaments still might be small fare, but it's good to see JJ fighters in MMA events
