Waza BJJ specializes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, one of the fastest-growing martial arts in the world.  We are open seven days a week for scheduled classes (both gi and no-gi) and open mat sessions.  We offer adult, children (ages 4 through 16), and women’s-only classes.  Waza BJJ opened in 2010 in the Elk Grove community of Laguna West.  The name “Waza” was chosen because it means “technique” in Japanese, which is an appropriate name given BJJ’s subtle, yet highly technical nature, and compliments “Jiu-Jitsu,” which means “gentle art.”

To provide a safe, positive, supportive, and welcoming environment for all
people. To use the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle as a tool for our members to become better, happier, healthier, and more fulfilled human beings. To follow the highest professional standards and strive to support the growth of every student and
guide them in achieving their goals. To nurture a community that supports
one another internally as well as gives back to the larger community
