University of Toronto Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Club (UTBJJC)

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training.

University of Toronto Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club is made up of students that are interested in the martial art. We have weekly training sessions in which are composed of technique drilling and rolling/live sparring. We will be doing both Gi and No-gi, and will potentially bring in local professors and competitors for seminars.
