Slide 1

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu applies the principles of balance, leverage, and momentum to overcome opponents. It uses an attacker’s energy against them rather than directly opposing it. This is in contrast to many other martial arts that emphasis power, strength, and speed. BJJ utilizes all forms of grappling techniques including throwing, trapping, joint locks, holds, striking, and kicking.

Karate translated means ‘way of the empty hand’. It is the Japanese art of weaponless self defense when in a striking encounter. At Raul Castillo Martial Arts we practice Kami-Do-Ryu, a traditional relative of Karate that was later developed to incorporate the use of weaponry in the advance ranks.
