Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can do what many martial arts promise, since the early days Jiu Jitsu is proven against stronger and heavier opponents. To achieve that, BJJ uses bodymechanics and leverage against weak parts of the attackers body.
The goal is to close the distance to the attacker as fast as possible and take the fight to the ground. The Groundfight has many advantages, it is easyer to control a person on the ground and the risk of loosing the fight or getting hurt is minimized a lot. If you know how to fight on the ground you´ll have a huge advantage over someone that doesn´t. „The ground is my ocean and iam a shark, most people don´t even know how to swim“ is a famous quote describing that fact.

Mixed Martial Arts is the modern way of fighting. It´s a combination of the most effective martial arts into a complete fighting system. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Boxing, Thaiboxing ar combined. A MMA fight continues on the ground and Punches are still legal once the fight goes down. At Matrix we are specialized on Groundfighting so we focus more on the Standup Arts in our MMA program.
Since the first UFC´s there is no doubt about the effectiveness of BJJ. The lightest and least athletic fighter Royce Gracie dominated the competition and showed the world that his style was the best, directly compared to all the other martial arts that competed there. These early UFC´s had no rules or weight classes! He proved that fighting heavyer and stronger attackers is most successful on the ground. The fact that most altercations on the street or other selfdefense scenarios go to the clinch/ground anyways is another reason to use BJJ as the main tool for effective selfdefense. In Jiu Jitsu we learn to be comfortable in really bad situations and automatically builda skillset not only surviving them but come out on top and defeat the attacker. There is no better Martial Art than BJJ for that matter and it can also be done by everybody.
