Abstract: This thesis is an ethnographic study of a Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) academy focusing on the practice of BJJ and the local community. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is facing a credibility crisis in the wake of its waning success in Mixed Martial Arts matches and prize fights; this development has forced the sport to radically alter the narrative used to justify its economic franchise. Specifically, I examine how the practice of BJJ is used to enable the performance and practice of gendered identities, maintain heterodox and orthodox disciplines of the body and combat, and simultaneously disguise the accompanying exchange of economic and symbolic capital. Additionally, my project explores the limitations of insider ethnography and the credibility of informant accounts.
