Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training:

I started learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Robson Moura style – I believe it was back in 2012 – at Lindamood’s Tae Kwon Do Academy (now known as Lindamood’s Martial Art Center), in Roanoke, V.A. I took a couple years haitus, and went back to martial arts in May of 2015. As of right now, I only have a white belt, as I am about to begin the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey again, along with continuing Tae Kwon Do. But I still have to wait for my podiatrist to clear me to get back into martial arts first, which I hope is soon, as I am so missing Tae Kwon Do and eager to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which will be my 6th style I will be training in.

The History:
It is said that jiu-jitsu originated from India, where Buddhist monks practiced it. The monks created techniques, in which focused on balance, leverage, and manipulation of the body, where one would not have to learn weaponry or rely on strength while sparring. It is a style of submission and ground fighting maneuvers.

Jiu-Jitsu then expanded from Southeast to China and eventually to Japan. In the late 19th century, several masters travelled from Japan to other continents, teaching the art style and introducing it into competitions.

Esai Maeda Koma, one of the masters, arrived in Brazil in 1915. A year later he met Gastao and Carlos Gracie, who became Koma’s first students. Carlos Gracie adapted well into a great student, and four years later he moved to Rio de Janeiro, where he began teaching and fighting. He travelled around and would end up beating other martial artists in competitions. When he returned to Rio de Janeiro in 1925, he opened his first school, the Academia Gracie of Jiu Jitsu. Eventually, Carlos adapted the Gracie Diet, in which aids in the nutrition and health of the martial art form. Today, the style is now known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It has become the most effective martial art style to train in and is used in many mixed martial art fights and competitions.
