Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ focuses on Grappling and Ground Fighting Techniques that enable a weaker smaller person to use leverage in order to defeat a larger stronger opponent. There is no striking in Jiu Jitsu and the main benefit of that has to do with the way Jiu Jitsu practitioners train or spar in classroom settings. The focus on submissions without the use of strikes while training allows practitioners to practice at full speed and with full power, resembling the effort used in a real competition or resisting opponent.
