Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a highly effective martial art for men, women, and children for both sport and self-defense. It was initially designed as a self-defense system, a combat art, for the smaller person using leverage against a larger assailant. This is important because not everyone is equipped with the strength or athleticism to overpower someone in an altercation.
One fact that remains true is that most altercations end up on the ground, which is why BJJ is one of the world’s most effective martial arts, and has even been battle-tested in events such as the UFC. With that being said, in order to train and learn, the beauty of jiujitsu is that you don’t have to be a professional power lifter, a collegiate wrestler, or a natural athlete – you just have to show up and train. Our curriculum is structured for progression through all skill levels from beginner to competitor, so if you have no experience, our level 1 classes are perfect for you.

Although Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is the best form of self-defense and a great way to get into shape, it’s a male-dominated sport and can be intimidating. Because of our safe training environment and coaching, we encourage co-ed classes, but this is why we offer women’s only classes taught by women.
