At Daniel Pope Karate, we offer classes in Brazilian jiu-jitsu at our Lansdowne and Springfield, PA locations.

Call our training school today to learn more or to sign up for classes.
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is designed to give a smaller and weaker person an advantage in defending against a bigger, stronger, and heavier assailant. Through the use of proper technique and leverage, a smaller individual can use this practice to take the fight to the ground, applying joint-locks and chokeholds to successfully defeat their larger opponent. Sparring, also known as “rolling,” as well as live drilling are a major part of training, putting you in real-life situations where you can learn moves to protect yourself.
Jiu-Jitsu: A Way of Life
Derived from the fundamentals of Kodokan judo ground fighting, Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own practice through experiments, practices, and adaptations of the original judo moves. One thing that Brazilian jiu-jitsu kept intact from its parent art of judo is the idea that it is not solely a martial art, but also a sport. The practice can be used as a method of improving physical fitness and building character in young people, teaching them a complete way (Do) of life.
