Brazilian Jiujitsu is a martial art practiced by millions of people. It is a grappling art in which students are taught to win against opponents through the use of leverage, technique and tactics. Like many martial arts, coaches are seldom well-suited to impart crucial knowledge to their students. Many coaches are in the position due to high level competition success which does not translate into good teaching ability. Coaches often teach in a way that they themselves have been taught, instead of relying on scientific knowledge of correct biomechanics, motor learning, and physiology. This manual will provide a scientific background in biomechanics, motor learning, and physiology to instructors to improve their training protocols.
