Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a self-defense system, martial art, and combat sport system that focuses on grappling with particular emphasis on ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was developed from Kodokan Judo fundamentals that were taught by a number of Japanese individuals including Takeo Yano, Mitsuyo Maeda, Soshihiro Satake, and Isao Okano. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu eventually came to be its own defined combat sport through the innovations, practices, and adaptation of Judo through the Gracie Family.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be practiced without a Gi (uniform), this is often referred to as "No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu" or submission grappling. No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu heavily incorporates techniques from Judo, Wrestling, Sambo and traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and is generally faster paced. No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years due to the easy transition into Mixed Martial Arts.
Due to the lack of a Gi, and Gi-specific grips, No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu is often easier to learn as the number techniques is very greatly reduced. No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu is also challenging style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as it is generally faster paced, and allows for previous experience in other grappling arts to be more easily assimilated into your experience. This can greatly benefit your learning curve. This can usually be experienced through sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling" within the BJJ community) and live drilling play a major role in training and the practitioner's development.
