WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU?
WARNING: It is addictive!
Brazilian jiu jitsu is traditionally a system of self defense that utilizes advantages such as leverage, momentum and strategy, making it effective for smaller people against bigger opponents. It is a ground game, although we do practice takedowns, that involves controlling your opponent, gaining advantageous positions and applying joint locks or chokes to immobilize opponent or "make them tap," similar to a checkmate.
The tap is one of the most unique and amazing aspects of jiu jitsu because it allows students to train as hard as they want without damage unlike others martial arts like krav maga or mma. The owner of our academy is 69 and still trains everyday!
Jiu Jitsu is for everyone
Whether you want to learn how to defend yourself, become a competitor, shed a few pounds or just up for a challenge, jiu jitsu has something for you. Women, kids, special needs, no athletic experience, small, big, strong or not, it doesn't matter. We strive to create a welcoming, friendly and safe environment for our students and visitors.
