Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit or be knocked out depending on what submission method is used. The art was based on early 20th century Kodokan Judo, which was itself then a recently-developed system (founded in 1882), based on multiple schools (or Ryu) of Japanese Jujutsu. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is especially efficient and works well for everyone, regardless of power or strength, making Jiu-Jitsu the ideal self-defense for smaller, older or less physical people.


It is a fact that 90% of all fights go to a “clinch” where two people are grabbing each other and that 80% end up on the ground either by accident or by design! Obviously, Jiu-Jitsu needs to be learned in order to defend yourself properly.

Every BJJ class includes dynamic and fun exercises that will boost your metabolism, help you build strength and endurance, gain flexibility and shoot your cardio through the roof! Because the core controls many of the movements in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Core exercises are a big part of every class. Yoga poses are also incorporated into every martial arts class we teach at our schools to increase flexibility, improve breathing, decrease stress and prevent injuries.

BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
