Jiu-jitsu is an art with a long and rich history, from its earliest mentions in the Samurai era, to its development as a unique and distinct art of grappling-oriented techniques.

The arena of MMA or the Mixed Martial Arts, has demonstrated clearly the importance of an integrated approach to one's Martial Arts training regimen.
