Jiu-Jitsu is translated as "Gentle Art". After the world witnessed Royce Gracie utilize Jiu-Jitsu's punishing submission holds in the UFC, no one thought of it as "gentle". What gentle refers to, is the ability to control and outmaneuver an opponent without excessive effort or force. Subtle positioning and leverage is used to control and eventually submit an attacker via choke, or joint lock.
Jiu-Jitsu is often referred to as "physical chess", relying on the work of the mind, in addition to the body. Students learn how to set up and combine techniques in a strategical fashion.
Through regular practice one can expect to see an improvement in self defense skills, fitness level, understanding of the physics involved and confidence.
