The narrator in the following film states that "the physics of Jiu-Jitsu is not well-known to the common population," a group that includes me.

In this BBC's REEL (5 m 52 s), "journalist Zakee Kudouro explores the the science of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.... Some basic fundamentals of physics and knowing the levers of the body" when practiced under controlled conditions, i.e., with instructors can make you a better Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete. However, the physics is interesting.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is concerned with self-defense and is a serious combat sport. It is dangerous and not for the untrained.

Levers as we all know are powerful devices with many uses.
