"Don't fear the man who does 1000 techniques, fear the man who does 1 technique 1000 times." Those words say it all. BJJ is a sport of repetition and refinement.
Since it was showcased on the international stage of the early UFC events in the 1990s, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (also referred to as "BJJ") has exploded in prominence amongst martial arts practitioners. During those early competitions. The world watched in amazement as Royce Gracie methodically defeated much bigger and stronger opponents by utilizing the BJJ principles of leverage, position, and superior technique to win in a series of submission victories. Today, BJJ is widely credited for spotlighting the importance of ground fighting and has become the staple grappling art of many MMA fighters.
Judo, as the perfect complement to Jiu-Jitsu, places a greater emphasis on the grappling elements while standing. Judo practitioners (judoka) are trained to utilize technique to disrupt their opponents' balance in order to throw them to the ground. Oftentimes, these throws not only result in a spectacular takedown, but also provide superior position to the judoka once they hit the ground.
