Bjw is a Japanese professional wrestling company that stands out for its peculiar style of practicing wrestling, where the toughness of the Strong Style and the belligerence of the Deathmatch Style are combined. It was created in 1995 by Great Kojika and Kendo Nagasaki, taking advantage of the splendor of deathmatch fighting in Japan.

It was 1994 when the deathmatch style took off, with companies with Frontier Martial Arts (FMWMore), IWA-Japan and W * ING, which offered unique functions where gushing blood was the constant. Taking advantage of this popularity, Great Kojika and Kendo Nagasaki created BJW. He was quickly placed in the fans' taste for the extreme struggle to employ tube lamps, tables, chairs and fire.

More information about BJW

In the beginning, Bjw He made an effort to innovate in fighting variants that were impressive, such as those in which the fighters faced each other in scenarios plagued with live animals such as piranhas, scorpions, spiders, among others (fortunately, these modalities are no longer used).

However, the specialty of the house is the use of tube lamps. Whether carried one by one, or in blocks, or placed around the ring, or taken from a pile, they are as light as they are fragile that when they hit the opponent's body they produce a burst of a thousand cuts, sharp fragments, which are embedded the skin. As if this weren't enough, the attacker can still step on his opponent to crush the shards and push them further.

Among the variety of elements allowed are tacks, glass panels, wood panels rolled with barbed wire, cage, scaffolding, concrete blocks, in addition to traditional tables, chairs, stairs.
