Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and self-defense system that focuses on grappling and submissions. It’s true strength shines most during ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is commonly known as the world’s most effective martial art. There is none better.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is based on the principle that a smaller and  weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger and stronger opponent. This is accomplished by using the bodies leverage and techniques. This makes Jiu JItsu an excellent option for women and children, allowing them to defend themselves should there be the possibility of violence or they find themselves in a bad situation. We encourage you to sit in on one of our classes.
