Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is widely regarded as the world’s most effective grappling art.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance.

In this journey, we cover the basic movements, positions, and concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We emphasize good technique, mobility, pressure, and leverage awareness over sheer strength. This class is for athletes who are interested in establishing their foundation in BJJ. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes teach GI techniques and NO-GI techniques. As students demonstrate proficiency they will be eligible for a blue.
