Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques are more often seen in mixed martial art competitions such as UFC, Pride and Strike Force, where successful fighters must be proficient in Jiu-Jitsu to succeed. Jiu-Jitsu, also known as the “Gentle Art” utilizes leverage techniques to overcome strength. It’s been shown that if Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a mixed martial art fighter’s only discipline, that fighter can still win a mixed martial art completion. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best martial art.
