I would like to welcome and thank you for visiting the Zjoo Zjitsoo website.

Zjoo Zjitsoo offers training (Self-protection and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), exclusive audio interviews and an upcoming book about martial arts as a means for personal growth.

The name Zjoo Zjitsoo was born when I was thinking of a cool business name. It had to be something that embodied martial arts, but it would be really great if it would come out of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu vocabulary. After checking out some grappling and jiu jitsu techniques, just like the fightwear company Sprawl did, I just couldn’t find a compelling name to use as a brand.

Then I finally got it: When Brazilians speak in the English language of their grappling art, they have an accent which makes “jiu jitsu” sound like “zjoo zjitsoo”. I puzzled a little on the spelling until I decided to spell it phonetically, just the way you pronounce it. It felt perfect right from the start, and it looks cool as well!
