Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It focuses on the principles of leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and provides a greater position to resolve the conflict by using submission holds.

Our classes start with proper warm-up and conditioning, with the remaining portion of the class comprised of self-defense, sport Jiu-Jitsu then live position training to end the class. We educate our students on how to have better control with their techniques, preparing them for live training.
