Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a marital art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It was derived from the Japanese marital art of Kodokan Judo in the early 20th century,which was itself then a recently-developed system (founded in 1882), based on multiple schools of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.
It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique; most notably, by applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat them. BJJ can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed marital arts (MMA) competition. Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
Muay Thai is referred to as "The Art of Eight Limbs", as the hands, shins, elbows and knees are all used extensively in this art. A practitioner of Muay Thai ("nak muay") thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight "points of contact," as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts. A practitioner of Muay Thai who is not of Thai nationality or race, is known as a Falang Nak Muay (foreign boxer).
A calculated mix of traditional and novel strength and conditioning exercises, Conditioning Training is prided on its specificity as much as its difficulty. It produces fast and measurable results whether you're seeking muscle mass and definition or looking to boost performance in a particular sport or activity. It takes the best of all training methods and puts them into a truly comprehensive routine that's goal-specific.
Submission wrestling (also known as submission fighting, submission grappling and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu) is a formula of competition and a general term describing the aspect of martial arts and combat sports that focus on clinch and ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission using submission holds.
The sport of submission wrestling brings together techniques from brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, folk American wrestling, Luta Livre Esportiva, Freestyle Wrestling, Judo and Sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in Mixed Martial Arts, Pankration, Catach Wrestling, Shootfighting, Shooto and others.
