Preserving the Art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Far too often Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been taught forgetting its roots as a Martial Art. The honor and respect promoted in Martial Arts is never lost at Alliance Jiu Jitsu Arkansas.
Our lineage in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is very deep and traces it's origins directly back to the original founder of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense .
Lineage: Mitsuyo Maeda > Carlos Gracie > Rolls Gracie > Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti.
