History of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Carlos Gracie and his brothers adapted the techniques in such a way that it completely transformed aspects of the international Jiu-Jitsu principles. The new techniques were so vastly different the sport became attached to Brazil’s national identity, and into what it is now commonly known as today ‘Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’.
