Grappling art derived from judo, focusing on forcing the opponent to submit using jointlocks and chokes.

Often referred to within combat sports circles simply as "jiu jitsu", with that particular spelling and context denoting Brazilian origin. Variants include Gracie, 10th Planet, and other personality-branded streams (e.g. Marcelo Garcia jiu jitsu, Lucas Lepri jiu jitsu).
