Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport system which emphasises in ground fighting. Students will learn how to take the fight to the ground where they'll use techniques and submissions to either gain dominant positions or submit their opponents with chokes or joint manipulations. This allows smaller individuals to defeat much larger opponents through technique and leverage. All MMA fighters incorporate BJJ into their training nowadays.
The Brazilian Top Team (BTT) is an academy specialized in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. The academy was established in April 2000 by Murilo Bustamante, Ricardo Libório, Mário Sperry and Luis Roberto Duarte, former-members of the Carlson Gracie Academy, to develop and create new training techniques for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, submission grappling and mixed martial arts (MMA).

Practitioners of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu wear a uniform called a "Gi" (pronounced ghee) comprised of a jacket, pants and belt. No-Gi uniforms are just shorts and a rash guard. The BJJ ranking system is a means of signifying a practitioner's increasing levels of technical knowledge and practical skill within the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Colored belts that are worn as part of the uniform are awarded to the practitioner. The ranking goes as follows: White, Blue Purple, Brown, then Black Belt. Students will earn stripes (total of 4) in between each belt rank until their next promotion.
*All students must wear clean uniforms.

Sport Jiu-Jitsu competitions are held all over the world now. While some people have no desire to compete, others want to test themselves to see where they stand in the BJJ community. At Woo, we can help you with competition training as most BTT students always medal when they compete. This is because of the attention to detail of the techniques, constant drilling and live rolling done here at BTT.
