Arte Suave

Jiu Jitsu means Gentle Art in English
Arte Suave means Gentle Art in Portuguese.

Arte Suave is also used to define a lifestyle of the Jiu Jitsu practitioners.
It can vary from attending classes to a Jiu Jitsu Academy to completely submerge yourself into the martial art: train full time and quit studying or working all together.

In a way, BJJ is the hipster of the martial arts.

Arte Suave is also a great documentary on some of the best of our martial art.
