Our Classes - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


In 1993 at UFC 1, Royce Gracie showed the martial arts world that a smaller individual, trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu could defeat much larger and stronger opponents. Since those early days, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has exploded in North America. And with BJJ’s rise in popularity, countless training clubs have popped up to meet the demand and provide instruction.

What is BJJ? Who should train BJJ?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an evolved form of the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ allows smaller opponents to use leverage and body position to set up escapes, submissions (joint locks, chokes, etc.), and striking.

It is an exceptionally practical martial art for anyone to train:

  • Often when in a combat situation, confrontations end up ‘going to the ground’. It is at this point the person that is versed in BJJ has the advantage.
  • BJJ is ideal for women. Unfortunately, 1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Training for BJJ is primarily done on the ground, making those who train extremely adept at escapes and submissions from your back or other dominated positions on the ground.
  • BJJ is an excellent martial art for kids. Besides teaching self defense tactics, BJJ teaches discipline and improves health and wellness.
  • BJJ is a great workout. Training and ‘rolling’ with other BJJ practitioners is one of the best full body work outs that can be done. BJJ improves cardio, strength, conditioning and flexibility.
