The late Carlos Gracie Sr. learned the art of Jiu-Jitsu from Mitsuya Maeda and opened the first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in 1925. It was in this Academy that Helio Gracie adapted the Japanese techniques into the modern Jiu-Jitsu that we know today. Helio Gracie developed a defensive form of fighting designed for a weaker person to defend themselves against a bigger and stronger person. It is very important to learn how to defend yourself on your feet as well as on the ground. Anyone can safely learn Jiu-Jitsu and enjoy the benefits of practicing this wonderful martial art! The benefits of training Jiu-Jitsu are increased strength, flexibility, endurance as well as improved overall well-being.
Janette Lapus is a purple belt under Royce Gracie/Chad Kight at Sugarland Mixed Martial Arts and a Yoga instructor at Awakened Yoga Studio.
