 Jiu Jitsu, also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, is actually not Brazilian in nature, though it is widely practiced there. Jiu Jitsu actually has its roots in Japan where it is considered a form of martial arts but was also widely used as a way to defend against armed opponents without using or having a weapon. The easiest way to understand the sport or the art form, depending on whom one asks, is to break down the words. Jiu means gentle, while Jitsu means art. Therefore, it is a gentle art or a softer way of self protection and combat. Today, there are many different forms and schools of thought that fall into this category. Some focus only on body techniques such as throwing, holding, and kicking, while others may involve weaponry and less traditional forms of fighting.
Despite the popularity of Jiu Jitsu, there is a lot of debate about how, exactly, it got started. Most people believe, however, that it first began being practiced in the 17th century. Some accredit its invention to Chen Yuan Ping, while others think it was invented by Dr. Akiyama Shirobei. Since the sport eventually became popular in Brazil, this is why it is sometimes referred to as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Few people would argue, however, that it is actually Brazilian in nature. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu form, in fact, is actually quite different than other forms of the art. Despite the debate about the origins of this art form, it is widely popular and has even evolved into the Olympic caliber sport of Judo.
No matter what form of Jiu Jitsu is practiced, however, there are certain aspects that always remain true. First of all, early skills are always learned by first watching and then mimicking the actions of the experienced teacher. Secondly, all forms of the sport use joint lock movements and various different kinds of strikes. Finally, both opponents are positioned so as to expose some points of weakness and also to have some points of strength, thus making the fighting or sparring ground equal and level for both contenders. As to the rest of the elements, the decision is up to the particular school or teacher of the art form, and there is a lot of room for diversity and personal spins and lines of reasoning.
People who are interested in practicing Jiu Jitsu should know that it is quite different from other forms of martial arts. In fact, all martial arts are different from one another and should never be lumped together. Potential students are encouraged to research many different art forms and then to make a decision about which one best meets their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual goals collectively.
