Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fun combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger opponent by using leverage and proper technique, and most notably by applying joint-locks and choke-holds to defeat them.
This program is designed for adults of all experience levels! We are dedicated to the improvement of our grappling and ground fighting skills. Where there is a challenge, there is an evolution. New techniques and strategies are constantly evolving. Knowledge is power.
Benefits of grappling:
Improves speed and agility
Allows the ability to “control” situations on the ground
