Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

The primary objective of Jiu-Jitsu is to empower the weak. Who for not having the physical attributes, are often intimidated.

In real life situations, rules and time limits are simply unacceptable. You need to be equipped with the skills necessary to escape an attack safely. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives you the skills you need to do this. Simply put Jiu-Jitsu levels the plain field for you, making the size of the threat irrelevant.
