World-class martial arts training for any experience level
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is highly technical and strategic, almost like a physical game of Chess, using joint-locks and chokeholds to subdue and immobilize your opponent. This makes it ideal for self defense, and also for advanced competition grappling.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I’m new to BJJ. What can I expect?
Don’t worry – we’ll take it slow! Our simple rules include: be safe, have fun, and learn something. You can start by scheduling your introductory session right here. This is a one-on-one opportunity for you to meet an instructor, ask questions, and be introduced to a few basic movements. You’ll then be transitioned to a fundamentals class.
Q. How should I dress?
Proper attire should include comfortable workout clothes (t-shirt, shorts, sweatpants, etc.). If you already have a Gi (Jiu-Jitsu uniform), please bring it with you. We also ask that you consider hygiene since this is a very physical martial art. Short nails and clean attire are a must.
Q. Will I grapple/roll on the first day?
Some schools have you begin rolling right away, but we prefer to have you ease into the process. You need to gain some basic skills and context first.
Q. Will I be paired with a more advanced student?
Yes, but only because BJJ is a learning environment. Two beginners can’t teach each other. The best way to improve is to be paired with a more experienced student.
Q. Do you teach sport or non-competition BJJ?
Both! Our emphasis is on non-competition, but if you’re interested in competing we can certainly help you. We’re focused on your goals and needs, and aren’t interested in forcing you down a certain track.
