Jiu Jitsu & Submission Grappling

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a complete fighting system that teaches you how to control and subdue your opponent. You learn not only how to immobilize an opponent effectively so they can’t attack you, but also how to defeat them humanely without having to seriously hurt them. It’s the only proven style where a smaller person can immobilize and defeat a stronger, larger attacker.

It is so effective in fact, it is considered to be required training for anyone who chooses to compete in the world renowned Ultimate Fighting Championships. Every single UFC Champion trains in Jiu-Jitsu or grappling. Bottom line, what you are going to learn in our Jiu-Jitsu classes works because its what professional fighters rely on when they step into the cage.

Our Jiu Jitsu classes are fun, friendly and provide a positive learning environment for all of our students. The types of people who train in our BJJ classes, vary from paramedics, attorneys, firefighters, construction workers & the list goes on. The point being, that these instructional classes are for everyone!

Grappling is a combination of wrestling techniques and submissions derived from the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Also known as “Submission Grappling,” or “No-Gi Jiu Jitsu,” Grappling has gained popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness in the mixed martial art world.

Grappling works to improve one's own personal strength, cardiovascular conditioning, body composition, core strength, and flexibility. Besides being a very effective discipline in both MMA and self-defense, grappling represents a fun wrestling style approach teaching all types of techniques, submissions, and maneuvers while staying off your feet. Our grappling classes are open to members of all skill levels.​
