Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on grappling, using body positioning and leverage to control your opponent. Because of this, the typical 'presumed' advantages, including size and strength, in a physical confrontation are largely negated.Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a combat sport that originates in Thailand and uses a variety of striking and clinching techniques, including punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. Much of this history of this art was lost when the Burmese sacked the capital city of Thailand in in the 14th century wiping out much of the written history. The art was passed from soldiers and fathers to their students and sons and used in combat allowing it to be tested and evolve though natural selection into an extremely effective fighting style. Muay Thai can be very physically demanding and is great for developing outstanding physical conditioning. At Summit County Jiu Jitsu our main goal is to teach in a safe effective manner, while engaging our students in a way that is fun and mentally stimulating.
