There are many martial arts programs offered, but what makes Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu stand out among so many?


Self Defense

BJJ is all about how to defend yourself from a bigger, stronger opponent, and primarily takes place on the ground. This makes it an effective form of self-defense that has actually been proven to work, as seen in the numerous popular MMA matches where fighters have defeated their opponents with chokes, armbars and triangles.

BJJ is not only a full-body workout, but also a fun and enjoyable experience. While even those in incredible shape have been left exhausted by the end of class, BJJ can be modified for any fitness level.



Training in BJJ immediately opens your world to making new friends, many of whom become family. Good training partners and instructors are needed in order to improve, and they quickly become your best friends.
