History of Jiu-Jitsu ( Part 2 )

History of Jiu-Jitsu ( Part 2 )

In 1915, a world-famous judo fighter, Mitsuyo Maeda, came to Brazil. There, he began to teach and spread Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. At this time, Jiu-Jitsu and Judo were considered the same subject. 

The first three students of Mitsuyo Maeda followed and became the first founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu today: the Carlos brothers, Helio Gracie, and Luiz França.

These ancestors are the ones who formed and developed today's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by optimizing the application of the technique, creating new techniques, and building a specific martial art.
