BJJ Survival

The BJJ Survival is an aspect that leads us closure to the founder of jiu-jitsu master Helio Gracie. Due to his smaller body, Helio was forced to learn how to survive against much larger and stronger opponents. Indeed, realizing that Helio will look for ways neither to survive nor to out-muscle these opponents.

His goal was simple, he may not win the fight, but he would not die. He would survive. The result of Helio’s adaptations was astonishing; by focusing on the use of leverage as a tool for survival.

Thus,he evolved jiu-jitsu into an art that could benefit a smaller person in a fight against a much larger opponent.
