Alliance South Florida specializes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which is a martial art, combat sport and self-defense system that can be trained for sport (grappling tournaments, both gi and no-gi), or MMA (mixed martial arts). The focus of Jiu-Jitsu is submission grappling (ground fighting). It teaches a smaller, weaker person to successfully defend against a bigger stronger opponent using leverage and technique. The fundamental ground moves are those that neutralize, immobilize, choke or apply pressure or twisting to the body's larger joints (submissions) to conquer over an adversary's attack.
