Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a dynamic martial art, contact sport, and self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position from which to force an attacker to submit. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) was originally formed from the traditional ground-based techniques of judo from Japan. Through the adaptations and teachings of Carlos and Helio Gracie, Brazilian jiu-jitsu came to be its own art and is now adopted and practiced around the world.

Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), or “gentle art”, teaches an individual to overcome a challenger, no matter his or her size. Brazilian jiu-jitsu accomplishes this by transitioning the fight to the ground where practitioners employ proper technique and leverage one's own strength to defeat an opponent.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition. Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.

This is a great workout for those looking for self defense application, as well as to supplement their skills in Boxing Kickboxing and Muay Thai.

These classes are held at the instructor's discretion.
