Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (“BJJ”) is one of Crossville MMA’s core training programs and is led by Cumberland County's ONLY Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, DJ Mackie.
The premise of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that a smaller, weaker person can defeat a stronger and larger opponent, through leverage and proper technique. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is primarily a ground-fighting art, where the practitioner’s train in a gi or “kimono”. This is similar to what is worn in Judo.
