Question by David: Can a practitioner of Brazilian Jujitsu say they and BJJ are descendants of the arts practiced by the samurai?
One of the descendants beside Judo, Aikido, Hapkido and other Jujutsu schools of course.

Can BJJ be traced back to Japan and be said to be a Japanese martial art that evolved in Brazil?

Best answer:

Answer by Pundragon
Well keep in mind that EVERY martial art is technically traceable back to India (I was a bit gutted when the monastery told me…not sure why).

Travellers would often learn skills and take them to new lands, in the case of BJJ it originated from the Ryu of Japanese art of Kodokan judo and developed into an art of it’s own with the help of the Gracie brothers (recently).
