Jujitsu martial arts employs a variety of techniques to disable the opponent. It includes exploitation of pressure points, joint locks, throws as well as break falls. Nowadays, jujitsu can mean the traditional jujitsu combat style from Japan or the modified Brazilian jujitsu.
In contrast to other combat styles, jujitsu is noted by its ground work. Practitioners are quick to take the combat on the ground as they attempt to win a sparring match by placing their opponent in locks or choke holds. Brazilian jujitsu is especially focused on trapping opponents in situations where the practitioner, opponent or both are on the ground.
Brazilian jujitsu is also a highly mental sport as you and your opponent attempt to outthink and outmanoeuvre each other. It has become a popular sport for MMA (mix martial arts) because it allows adept strikers to defend themselves when caught off balance or on the floor.
