Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a Martial Art and combat sport that focuses on Grappling. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the principle that the smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique, applying submissions via joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat them. BJJ can be trained for self-defense, sport grappling tournaments (Gi and no-Gi) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition, and is becoming a more and more popular method among students looking to improve physical fitness, core strength, stability and flexibility.
BJJ classes are incredibly beneficial for students of all age and skill levels. With our traditional belt ranking system and thorough instruction geared toward mastery of the various submissions and technical aspects of BJJ, students graduate to the next belt based on demonstration of submissions and techniques associated with each belt class.BJJ is a fun, safe way to learn a highly effective self-defense method, while improving cardiovascular conditioning, functional strength, flexibility and overall fitness.
*We require students to wear Gi’s for class. Gi’s will be available for purchase and conveniently located in our pro shop.
