What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
BJJ teaches a person how to defend themselves by applying a combination of throws, takedowns, joint locks and chokes. What makes Brazilian jiu jitsu so unique and effective is it teaches these concepts while stressing the importance of leverage, timing and technique.
Because of this, when applied correctly, it allows a smaller, slower, and weaker opponent the opportunity to defend themselves against a bigger, faster, and stronger opponent. Jiu jitsu levels the playing field when it comes to self defense! Our student base ranges from children (age 5 and up), to men and women, law enforcement and first responders, to people of all ages, health and fitness levels, who all have one common goal in mind: To be able to protect themselves and their loved ones.
As an added bonus, many of our students find that while practicing jiu jitsu they also notice increased self-confidence, health, weight loss, and an overall better lifestyle.
