LUIZ RIBEIRO - CHECKMAT LONDON

Luiz: I like the idea that in BJJ everyone can win, you don’t have to be strong to restrain an opponent. We train with and without gi and, although with the latter, strength becomes more of a deciding factor most of the time we train with gi. With this it’s much more about technique and style, and just because someone might be strong it doesn’t mean they’ll win. Hence it’s a pretty good sport for everyone and anyone to learn.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has many levels to it and a huge range of techniques, positions etc. With a lot of people who do only stand up martial arts the fight is over once their opponent gets them on the floor. You still see this in some MMA fights. That’s why a lot of people who are interested in MMA start studying Jiu Jitsu.
