5 Elements Martial Arts

  • Home
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Known as “the gentle art”, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or BJJ) originated in Japan and was perfected in Brazil.  A form of self-defence that is grappling-based, BJJ focuses on the concept of being able to defend yourself against a larger assailant using proper technique, leverage, and by utilizing joint locks and chokeholds. BJJ is useful when the fight “goes to the ground” and is a great practical martial art for people who want to build skills for self-defence.

The 5 Elements BJJ curriculum is a full-body workout — training techniques incorporate the whole body and improve flexibility, balance, and coordination as well as providing the skills and techniques necessary for BJJ mastery.
