The technique soon spread throughout feudal Japan, where it was used for wartime hand-to-hand combat. Over time, the technique evolved from a martial art to a sport. Some claim that some traces of the practice can be found in the ruins of ancient Egyptian and Greek cities. But there is no definitive evidence of their existence.
The practice of Jiu-Jitsu originated in Brazil, where the Gracie brothers developed the sport. They refined the art by training in no-rules fights and focused on submission ground fighting, which allowed a smaller man to defeat a larger opponent. The Gracie brothers devised the first point system for jiu-jitsu-specific competition. Despite its controversial origins, a popular belief about the martial art is that it is effective in both self-defense and a grappling game.
High-level grapplers usually focus on the best techniques to win. Even the world’s most popular BJJ competitor, Roger Gracie, used a White Belt technique to submit world champions. This technique was adapted from Brazilian boxing. Today, it is still one of the most effective in the world. The Gracies’ teachings have become part of many traditional martial arts styles. In fact, many people believe that the art began as a sport and is now practiced all over the world.
The Gracies’ teachings spread to other countries. The Gracies also became influential in Brazil. Their father, George Gracie, was a Scottish immigrant. They passed on the knowledge of Jiu Jitsu to Carlos Gracie. In 1925, they opened Brazil’s first Jiu Jitsu academy. This paved the way for the sport to spread throughout the country. Its growth sprang from this event.
Historically, most historians believe that the systemized martial arts came from India. Buddhism was introduced to China in the first century, and the Shaolin temple was built in the middle of China. However, the art of Jiu-Jitsu is believed to have evolved in conjunction with the introduction of Buddhism and Boxing. The practice of Jiu-Jitsu has its roots in the Buddhist tradition of ancient China, and its roots can be traced back to the earliest days of the civilization.
Initially, jujutsu was taught through no-rules competitions between two opponents. Afterwards, it developed as a separate combat sport. Since then, jiu jitsu has grown into a global phenomenon.
