Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Comprehensive, Effective Grappling for Sport or Self Defense

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has roots in traditional Judo fundamentals and has since been adapted into its own sport. Codified in Brazil under the Gracie family, BJJ teaches how to control or disable another person through takedowns, pins, joint locks, and chokes. Proper technique involves an understanding of leverage and basic principles of biomechanics and physics, and a skilled practitioner can effectively neutralize a much larger and/or stronger opponent. 

Beyond that, BJJ is an entirely unique culture within the martial arts world. At our gym you'll be welcomed onto our team, and during training egos are left at the door. Training is meant to benefit everyone, and many lifelong friendships have been made on the mat.
