Another week, another blog post! This week, I'd like to write a little about a new passion of mine; Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We're really blessed in Ardmore to have a first-rate BJJ school, Sasser Jiu Jitsu and Fitness, which is owned and managed by a top-tier black belt in BJJ.
One of the things I love about BJJ is that it's a pure martial art. What I mean by that is PURE BJJ technique has a unique identity all it's own. When I first started training, I didn't really know what BJJ was all about. I thought it was another martial art, a Karate offshoot, or something like Kung Fu or Tae Kwon Do. What makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu different from other martial arts is that there is no striking. No punches, no kicks, no elbow or knee blows.
