Vancouver BJJ instructor Ritchie Yip, talks about how Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is merely a solution to a problem in the video below.
BJJ is a grappling art were the foundational position is the Guard. The Guard in BJJ is similar to “keeping your hands up” in Boxing. Not only is the Guard the main defensive structure you are maintaining in order to keep your head and our torso safe but it is also the primary offensive platform in which you can launch your attacks.
If you are in a fight and you wind up lying on your back then BJJ has a solution to this problem. You can give your attacker your legs, meaning that you are point your legs at your attacker and you are thus placing them in your Guard.
This is a simple breakdown of BJJ but one that allows a novice to immediately understand the complexities of BJJ.
