Brazilian jiujitsu (BJJ) is a close-quarter combat system focused on grappling and ground fighting. It is the fastest-growing martial art in the world, and is based on a simple concept that an individual is able to overcome a heavier and bigger opponent through technique, leverage, ground control, and restraint and submission skills.
Kyokushin (極真) karate is an extremely hard full-contact style of karate where exponents train and fight bare-knuckled, and with no protective equipment. Kyokushin uses knock-down only rules in competition, and its influences can be seen in the K-1 Kickboxing, MMA Championships, and full-contact karate tournaments globally.
