With our progressive system we have taken back what was taken from the original Jiu-Jitsu and Kododan Judo when they were made into sports. We offer you the purest form of these arts. If you're looking for Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense and Martial Arts in Draper you've come to the right place.
What is Jiu-Jitsu?
Jiu Jitsu is translated as gentle art/soft art.
The term "gentle art" was to convey the guiding idea that lies beneath all Jiu- Jitsu, both classical Japanese Judo and modern Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the idea of using one's own strength in the most efficient way. Rather than resisting force with force, the idea is to yield to force and then use an opponent's strength against him, using efficient technique in an intelligent fashion to overcome raw strength and aggression, this is the philosophical core of jiu-jitsu.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Hermoso - Behring Jiu Jitsu is under the supervision of Prof. Michael Hermosillo and Mestre Sylvio Behring of Rio De Janerio. Our team is getting bigger and stronger. Not only in the sport of Jiu Jitsu, but in Self Defense as well. For many years in Brazil all academies just focused on tournament Jiu Jitsu and BJJ's history was forgotten. Mestre Sylvio Behring is one of the most talented and respected Instructor's in Brazil. He keeps alive the tradition of teaching Judo and Self Defense. He is the only one to have developed a system to make it easier to learn Jiu Jitsu, called the "Progressive system", and under this system our students can learn Jiu Jitsu techniques faster.
