There are various types of self-defense martial arts. In Beijing, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is gaining popularity, reports Yin Di for China Daily.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a ground fighting martial arts. But unlike many other ground fighting styles, it teaches practitioners the skill of controlling. As control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is centered round the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control without hurting the opponent.

Two years ago, four martial artists from Norway, Sweden and Brazil came to Beijing and opened Big King BJJ to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to all nationalities, ages and genders. When dark falls, a classroom in Wangjing is fueled with the power of the martial arts.
