Deftac AIC – Brazilian Jiujitsu Ortigas


Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo (which itself is derived from Japanese Jujutsu) in the early 20th century.

It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense.[3] Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.

Deftac AIC / Ortigas has been around since late 2011 and has been a breeding ground for BJJ gold medal chasers that competes in both national and international tournaments.

Our aim is to promote and share the beauty of the art which we love called Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and through it we hope to help and change lives of people with and around us.

Our team is comprised of professionals and individuals that aim to reach their goals and Brazilian Jiujitsu has just been part of our lifestyle as we know it.

Visit and start your journey with Brazilian Jiujitsu.
