Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ; jiu-jitsu brasileiro) is a self-defense system, martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling with particular emphasis on ground fighting. Brazilian jiu-jitsu was developed from Kodokan judo ground fighting (newaza) fundamentals that were taught by a number of Japanese individuals including Takeo Yano, Mitsuyo Maeda, Soshihiro Satake, and Isao Okano. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own defined combat sport through the innovations, practices, and adaptation of judo. BJJ teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage to take the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations.

Willink is a black belt and is a BJJ trainer at a San Diego gym he co-owns. A Navy SEAL master chief introduced Willink to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and he fell in love with the sport. He even goes so far as to say that it's the best martial art anyone can learn.

He was a former special forces soldier, as mentioned by many. Special forces soldiers don’t rely on technical techniques or any that requires a great deal of movement and expended energy. Instead, they combine the most barebones yet effective and simple fundamental techniques from styles like Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Japanese jujutsu, Chinese Qinna (or Chin Na, a set of techniques focusing on joint locks), boxing, and wrestling, all of which are renowned for their effectiveness in simple self-defence circumstances, in their training. More likely than not, special forces utilize Krav Maga.
