Jiu-Jitsu, “the gentle art” can be traced back to India, where it was practiced by Buddhist Monks. Jiu-Jitsu spread across the Far East, finally arriving in Japan where it developed and gained further popularity.


Esai Maeda Koma, also known as “Conde Koma,” was a Jiu-Jitsu master who emigrated to Brazil. There he found Carlos Gracie, a frail fifteen year old. After 10 years of training, Carlos Gracie opened the first school, known as the “Academia Gracie de Jiu Jitsu.” in 1925, Carlos shared his knowledge with his brothers, adapting and refining the techniques to the naturally weaker characteristics of his family. With a goal of proving Jiu-Jitsu’s superiority as well as to build a family tradition, Carlos challenged the greatest fighters of his time, as well as managing the fighting careers of his brothers. Fighting opponents fifty or sixty pounds heavier, the Gracies quickly gained recognition and prestige.


Through the work of the Confederation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Carlos Gracie Jr. contributed to the growth of the sport by holding some of the first organized competitions.

The ECU BJJ instructors’ Jiu-Jitsu lineage can be traced back to Carlos Gracie. Like our masters before us, it is our goal to spread the Art of BJJ and we do this best by instilling our students with the hard work, technique and principals of our masters. BJJ is always evolving and judo, wrestling and other martial arts techniques are often merged into our art for maximum grappling effectiveness and competition success.

Muay-Thai is a standing form of martial arts that originated in Thailand and has become very popular among mixed martial arts enthusiasts. Because Muay-Thai combat involves the fists, feet, shins, elbows and knees, it is sometimes called “the art of eight limbs” – and that requires the Muay-Thai practitioner to develop superior physical discipline and mental focus to keep on top of the action.

How is Muay-Thai different from kickboxing?
Like kickboxing, Muay-Thai incorporates the entire body. That makes it a great cardio workout! At ECUBJJ, our kickboxing programs incorporate motions from Muay-Thai – which is also often called “Thai boxing.”

But Muay-Thai goes back hundreds of years, to a time when opponents in Muay-Thai matches competed with hemp rope wrapped around their hands and forearms. Today, Muay-Thai fighters wear boxing gloves and fight in modern boxing rings. Muay-Thai has become a popular martial arts style with MMA fighters and is now practiced around the world.

Benefits of Muay Thai Training
Muay-Thai offers an intense cardio workout and helps you build your endurance, speed, and power. You’ll also develop greater control as you learn to coordinate your kicks and punches for maximum power. And Muay-Thai helps improve mental focus at the same time as it builds your physical stamina.


Plus, Muay-Thai is a highly effective form of self-defense that has been taught to military and law enforcement professionals. It’s also a potent form of stress relief, allowing you to release tension and anger in a healthy way – and it can be a lot of fun! People who learn Muay-Thai and other forms of kickboxing also experience a boost in self-confidence as they acquire new skills and stretch their abilities further than they thought possible.

But you don’t have to be a powerful MMA fighter or a member of the military to benefit from learning Muay-Thai. At ECUBJJ, we welcome students of different ages and fitness levels to our Muay-Thai training programs.
