Training Lineage: Helio Gracie- Royler Gracie- Saulo Ribeiro- Xande Ribeiro
Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system created by the legendary Gracie family. Especially instrumental to the art's development was Helio Gracie, the youngest of the five Gracie brothers. Due to his thin and frail physique, he was forced to adapt the techniques he learned, so that a smaller, weaker person could overcome an adversary of greater size and strength. In the prime of his career, Helio Gracie would accept and defeat challenges of much larger, heavier, and stronger men, in his quest to prove the superior effectiveness of Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu is originally derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century, which was itself developed from a number of schools of jiujutsu in the 19th century. Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are somewhat negated when grappling on the ground.
