The Berkshire Nautilus offers Brazilian Jiu Jitsu(BJJ)

What is BJJ?BJJ_logo

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, also known as the “suave art” is a grappling art originating in Japan and later adapted and further developed by Brazil. It is different from all other martial arts in the world because it uses submissions rather than hand to hand striking. A much smaller opponent is able to submit a much larger attacker from the most vulnerable position, the ground.

BJJ helps you:

  • Get great exercise
  •  Build self confidence
  • Learn self-defense
  • Learn body awareness
