We teach the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Jiu Jitsu is a sophisticated Martial Art with a rich history. It originated in Japan under the Samurai, was refined by the Gracie family in Brazil, and now enjoys worldwide popularity as the fastest growing and most effective martial art in the world.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu combines ground-based grappling, joint locks, chokes, Judo throws, and wrestling clinch-work and takedowns into an effective and well rounded self-defense system suitable for men and women of all ages.
Although there are many forms of Jiu Jitsu, the Brazilian style has distinguished itself at the highest levels of competition and combat. It is a foundational discipline of Mixed Martial Arts. In fact, the UFC was created by Rorion Gracie of the legendary Gracie Jiu Jitsu family. It also forms the basis of the U.S. Army’s Modern Combatives program.
We run a safe, friendly, and inclusive environment, offering classes both in the traditional Gi style, and the modern NO-Gi submission grappling variant.
