Brazilian Jiujitsu Club

Category: Athletic

We meet three times a week in the Wrestling Room in Skoglund to discuss, drill, and practice the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, one of the world's most effective and prolific martial art systems. Founded by Helio Gracie, it was developed and honed the art as a self-defense system on the streets of Rio de Janeiro before being brought to the United States and popularized by Helio's descendants. As a whole, it focuses primarily on wrestling and controlling one's adversary on the ground, and thus is a fun, dynamic, and widely applicable form of self defense.

Meetings: Saturdays 10-11ish AM, Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-10ish PM

Contacts:  President and Dictator-for-Life Mike Litkewitsch (litkewit)
