About Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
With five locations throughout Brooklyn, New York, Jay Lynch and other experts in the martial arts field developed Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2009. One of Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's owners, Jay Lynch found himself interested in the practice and history of Brazilian jiu-jitsu while studying several disciplines. A century old, Brazilian jiu-jitsu emerged from Japan's Mitsuyo Maeda trip to Brazil where he trained politician Gastão Gracie and his children in jiu-jitsu.
The children transformed the method to include chokeholds, joint locks, and other self-defense techniques to become that which Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practices today. A purple belt holder himself, Jay Lynch appreciates how Brazilian jiu-jitsu can give a smaller person the advantage against a larger opponent. At Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, students can learn how to combine leverage with less expenditure of mental and physical energy to defeat attackers.
