Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling, ground fight and submission holds. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one's opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks and choke holds.
The concept of BJJ is that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend him/herself against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution, taking the fight to the ground and using a number of holds and submissions to defeat them. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling and self-defense situations.

Regardless your gender and age or whether you’re new to Jiu-Jitsu, or a seasoned practitioner, we offer a variety of adult classes that will meet your individual needs and experience level.

Submission Grappling or also known as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage (or disadvantage) of a uniform to grab on to. Take off the Gi and the three biggest differences are less friction, fewer and weaker grips to control your opponent and fewer methods of applying strangles. The class focuses on modifying our normal Jiu-Jitsu techniques by reducing emphasis on the ability to grab clothing material. What you have left is a real life experience that is similar to the type of grappling done in the Octagon.
