Jiu-Jitsu history can be traced back to India, where it was practiced by
Buddhist monks many centuries ago. The monks used the art as
self-defense by relying on techniques of balance and leverage without
the use of weapons. With Buddhism spreading to other Asian nations,

still practiced in it’s traditional form today.
