Maeda had trained first in sumo as a teenager, and after the interest generated by stories about the success of Kodokan Judo at contests with other jujutsu schools that were occurring at the time, became a student of Jigoro Kano.
Maeda accepted Carlos as a student and Carlos learned for a few years, eventually passing his knowledge on to his brothers. When Maeda left Japan, judo was still often referred to as "Kano jiu-jitsu",  or, even more generically, simply as jiu-jitsu.
To make the matter clear I will state that jiudo is the term selected by Professor Kano as describing his system more accurately than jiu-jitsu does. Professor Kano is one of the leading educators of Japan, and it Jiu jitsu natural that he should cast about Jiu jitsu the technical word that would most accurately describe his system.
But the Japanese people generally still cling to the more popular nomenclature and call it jiu-jitsu. Thus, when Maeda and Satake arrived in Brazil inevery newspaper announced their art as being "jiu-jitsu" despite both men being Kodokan judoka.
When the Gracies went to the United States to spread their art, they used the terms "Brazilian jiu-jitsu" and "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu" to differentiate from the already present styles using similar-sounding names.
The art is sometimes referred to as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu GJJthis name was trademarked by Rorion Graciebut after a legal dispute with his cousin Carley Graciehis trademark to the name was voided. While each style and its instructors have their own unique aspects, they are all basic variations of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Today there are four major branches of BJJ from Brazil: Divergence from Kodokan rules[ edit ] There were changes in the rules of sport judo after judo was introduced to Brazil.
Some rule changes were sought to enhance it as a spectator sport, and some for improved safety. Several of these rule changes have greatly de-emphasised the groundwork aspects of judo, and others have reduced the range of joint locks allowed and when they can be applied.
Spinal locks and cervical locks are completely forbidden from Gi Jiu Jitsu,  amateur MMA,  multiple forms of no Gi Jiu Jitsu,  Judo,  and other martial arts,  due to potential to cause serious bodily injury.
BJJ permits all the techniques that judo allows for the fighters to take the fight to the ground. BJJ also allows any and all takedowns from wrestling, sambo, or any other grappling arts including direct attempts to take down by touching the legs. BJJ also differs from judo in that it also allows a competitor to drag his opponent to the ground, and even to drop to the ground himself provided he has first taken a grip.
BJJ has also become more sports oriented and has eliminated techniques such as picking up an opponent from the guard and slamming him.
It has since become a staple art for many MMA fighters and is largely credited for bringing widespread attention to the importance of ground fighting. Style of fighting[ edit ] This section needs additional citations for verification.

January See also: List of Brazilian jiu-jitsu techniques Upholding the premise that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are mitigated when grappling on the ground, Brazilian jiu-jitsu emphasizes getting an opponent to the ground in order to use ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds.
A more precise way of describing this would be to say that on the ground, physical strength can be offset or enhanced by an experienced grappler who knows how to maximize force using mechanical advantage instead of pure physical strength.
BJJ permits a wide variety of techniques to take the fight to the ground after taking a grip.
While other combat sports, such as Judo and Wrestling, almost always use a takedown to bring an opponent to the ground, in BJJ one option is to "pull guard. Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers and counter-maneuvers are available to manipulate the opponent into a suitable position for the application of a submission technique.
Achieving a dominant position on the ground is one of the hallmarks of the BJJ style, and includes effective use of the guard a signature position of BJJ position to defend oneself from bottom using both submissions and sweeps, with sweeps leading to the possibility of dominant position or an opportunity to pass the guardand passing the guard to dominate from top position with side controlmountand back mount positions.
This system of maneuvering and manipulation can be likened to a form of kinetic chess when used by two experienced practitioners. A submission hold is the equivalent of checkmate in the sport, reflecting a disadvantage which would be extremely difficult to overcome in a fight such as a dislocated joint or unconsciousness.
Renzo Gracie wrote in his book Mastering Jiu-jitsu: Renzo Gracie stated that this was a fundamental influence on the Gracie approach to combat, these strategies were further developed over time by the Gracies and others, and became prominent in contemporary MMA.
BJJ is most strongly differentiated from other martial arts by its greater emphasis on ground fighting. Commonly, striking-based styles spend almost no time on groundwork. Even other grappling martial arts tend to spend much more time on the standing phase. This has led to greater time dedicated to training on the ground similar to that of Kosen Judoresulting in enhancement and new research of groundwork techniques by BJJ practitioners.NEWS EBI Combat Jiu-Jitsu Coming in Featuring Open Palm Strikes to the Head.
