Why Martial Arts?
The martial arts taught at Buffalo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy were specifically designed to help the smaller, weaker, and less athletic individuals use technique and skill to consistently beat larger and stronger opponents. The system developed from Judo, including some techniques from Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and with a focus on ne-waza (ground technique). BJJ enables a smaller, weaker person using leverage and technique to defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition. In addition Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Judo, MMA, and Kids Martial Arts offers a great cardio workout that is enjoyable, fulfilling, and mentally stimulating .Buffalo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu welcomes the opportunity to share this knowledge with you and provide the best in self defense and martial arts training.
