Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Highlights Video

'I do have a very particular set of skills, skills that I have acquired over a very long career, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you...' - Quote from the movie 'Taken'. Well said Liam Neeson. This Brazilian Jiu Jitsu highlights video is awesome. Love this quote, and love this quote for BJJ.

The Basics - Jiu Jitsu Techniques, Positions, and Moves

Below is a compiled list of some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves, techniques, and positions. Even just learning basic terminology can be helpful when training, so that you do not get lost when your instructor is talking. Aside from the heavy Brazilian accents they might have, it can be difficult to follow along with all of the jiu jistu lingo. Even some of the simple BJJ positions and moves may have several nicknames that others fighters have never heard of!
