Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered by many to be one of the most effective forms of self-defense on the planet. The icing on the cake is that it is incredibly fun as well. Our students are of all ages, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. We have a place in our family just for you. We train in gi, no-gi, and street clothes.
Our kids program is designed to teach self-defense, confidence, and respect in a fun and safe environment. Bullies tend to target victims that appear weak or timid. We help our kids find and/or nurture their inner confidence so that they shine with strength. In the event that our students have to protect themselves or somebody else, they will be well versed in one of the most effective martial art forms on the planet.
The fundamentals classes focus on building a solid understanding of the logic behind techniques and positions as well as creating the necessary muscle memory for basic BJJ movements. “There are a finite number of basic techniques, but there are an infinite number of variations.” – Helio Gracie. A strong foundation in the basics is always key.
Street Jiu Jitsu
Some argue as to whether training in gi or no-gi is more practical in terms of defending yourself on the street. Instead of debating the matter, we train in street clothes once a month.
Ever feel like punching or kicking something? Us too. You might as well learn proper technique and do it in a safe and fun environment. Having solid striking technique and the associated muscle memory are critical self-defense skills. Relieve stress, learn how to defend yourself, get in shape, and have fun while you do it.
In the early days of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, when Carlos and Helio Gracie were paving the way forward, much of the teaching was done in a one-on-one setting. In this way, each student could progress at his or her own rate. This also allowed the teacher to ensure that the student fully grasped the key foundational concepts before moving forward. Private lessons are a great way to supplement your training. It is also a great opportunity for those that want to learn in a more private setting.
