We cater to all fitness and skill levels, whether you want to learn self-defense, get in better shape, or both. The first week is always free. Did you know that Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a martial arts and self-defense system focusing on ground fighting? Although BJJ is an effective form of martial arts for standing combat, it is considered the best martial art for a street fight. BJJ is highly effective in self-defense situations because most fights end up on the ground, and opponents are unlikely to agree to give up in the heat of the moment. There is no way you can get your opponent to tap out if they’re punching you in the face, but if you’ve captured them with a chokehold or armlock? They’re probably going to tap out eventually
Want a fun way to get fit and stay in shape? Did you know we are also an official USA Boxing sanctioned training center? Our classes are open to competitors and non-competitors alike.
