No matter how good you are on your when fighting on your feet, you must be equally proficient on the ground in order to have the most realistic self-defense techniques.  Especially when dealing with a bigger, stronger opponent, or with someone who can close the distance and force grappling or wrestling, or might just be better than you when standing.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts, shows us that no matter how small you are, you can be able to gain a dominant position on your opponent no matter how big they may be.

Did you know that 80-90% of street fights end up on the ground and almost ALL rapes end up on the ground as well?  So, relying only on your standing skills to defend you is not only naive but is also dangerous considering the statistics.  Fact of the matter is: if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground–you don’t know how to defend yourself.  The importance of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to know how to defend against a ground attack and to be able to escape back to your feet if it were to happen.

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position.  It uses joint-locks and choke holds to force an opponent to submit and also teaches you how to escape encounters on the ground.  Today, BJJ is practiced for fun, self-defense or sport by men and women, hobbyists, professional fighters, military, and law enforcement alike. A lot of people take BJJ for fun, or for the sport element of training in martial arts, but the practical street elements are there if the situation were to arise where you needed to get back to your feet if taken to the ground.
