When I started training BJJ in Manchester it quickly became apparent how powerful a martial art Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is. The reason the techniques are so devastatingly effective isn?t that they were unique to BJJ, but many of the same techniques are heavily used in traditional martial arts such as Aikido, Japanese Ju Jitsu and many more.
