BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent. Jiu Jitsu is widely considered the most useful form of self defense, but is also has a competitive circuit. There are hundreds of different BJJ tournaments with the biggest being the IBJJF.

Beginners

Designed to provide students a solid foundation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, basic BJJ theory, technique and principles. Each class incorporates flow drills to help students internalize the fluid body mechanics behind the concepts they are learning. All Levels welcome.

Intermediate

Take a more in-depth look at the principles and techniques of BJJ. Situational attacks, high level transitions, escapes and offensive strategies are explored, in addition to a strong emphasis on instinctual application through live sparring. On the intermediate side, it is required students have at least 45 Beginners classes first. NoGi classes are available after 3 stripes on a white belt.

Advanced

Advanced classes are for Blue Belts and higher. This is ideal for students looking to improve in less common situations, and great for any students interested in competing. The rounds are longer, and the breaks are fewer in these classes.

Open Mat

Non-instructional class where students may practice the application of technique through independent drilling and timed sparring matches. Students are encouraged to conceptualize their strengths and weaknesses, and to work on internalizing what they learned throughout the week. Guidance by instructors is available.

Learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in childhood brings several benefits, including discipline, respect, trust, friends, problem solving skills, bullying prevention and others. Lots of Jiu Jitsu specific exercises here.

Women's BJJ

Coach Allie is helping sharpen the skills of all of our female students in a Women's only class every Saturday. The perfect environment for any women who may be unsure about starting Jiu Jitsu.

"Ive done Karate, Tae Kwon Do and other rec sports. BJJ and Muay Thai doesn’t hide the fact that you only progress as far as you put in. There are no participation trophies or paid belt tests. Every belt in BJJ is earned through hard work and dedication. Muay Thai also doesn’t hide or put up false results. Drilling techniques with your partner is much different than hitting a heavy bag over and over."
