Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the world's premiere fighting arts specializing in ground fighting with emphasis on positions control and submissions. Jiu Jitsu tends to rely upon proper leverage of techniques for succes rather than brute strength, it is considered both self-defense and sport, making it ideal for men and women of all ages.

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training incorporates both:
No-Gi & Gi (traditional uniform) classes.

Gi and No-Gi are two sides of the same coin. While they are indeed two distinct sports with characteristics based on attire, they both stem from the same Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu delivery system and share the same positional strategies, featuring control and submissions through mastery of leverage, pressure, mobility, and timing.  We encourage exploration into both sports as we feel it will give you an overall better appreciation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as an art. Each sport is usually characterized by a different pace and arsenal unique unto itself. Learning both these aspects of grappling will only add to your development as a complete BJJ Athlete.
