To say that Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a contact sport is an understatement. When we are not intentionally seeking to choke our opponents unconscious or bring our opponents’ limbs just to the point before breaking, there is plenty of room for accidental injury (as in most sports). We do not use strikes in jiu-jitsu but nonetheless, an inadvertent knee, elbow, or head, coming towards one’s face can easily turn one’s pearly whites into unpleasant sights!
