Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Human Chess: The Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 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 conflict by using submission holds.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been proven, when used properly, to be an effective method for dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). A student can train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for self defense, sport jiu-jitsu (and submission grappling) and mixed martial arts competition. It has found its way into the training regiment of nearly every successful martial artist worldwide.
Our teachers and staff bring you the highest quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction in a friendly, respectful, family environment. Whether you’re looking for discipline, fitness, sport or self-defense training, we will meet your needs. Our rotating curriculum covers all aspects of grappling, for self-defense and competition, from throws and take-downs to ground work and submissions.
Our community-based method of instruction integrates beginners into ongoing classes with advanced students. Newcomers learn not only from the class instructor, but also from more experienced students, providing a wider pool of knowledge, wisdom and technique. Advanced students, in turn, gain insight by helping beginners to progress. All classes are taught by qualified instructors. We choose our instructors based on teaching ability, technical knowledge, personal integrity, patience, and dedication to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Students also improve their quality of life through developing their focus, discipline, skill, self-confidence and physical fitness. Jiu-jitsu can provide families with a lifetime of shared memories, personal growth, and common interest.
