A grappling-based martial art developed by Carlos Gracie Sr. in Brazil.

Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is centered round the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless.

A vision that started in late 1900s.
