 ADULTS (13-113 yrs)


Our adults BJJ program is geared to take our students from their current level of fitness and flexibility to a level that will empower them towards their goals. They will learn how to defend themselves while getting into great shape. These classes are an ideal way to build self confidence and give you the tools you need to overcome any obstacle that gets in your way.

Pups (4-6 yrs)          


The Pups program focuses on the developmental growth of these students to better prepare them for their road ahead in school, at home, and in life. In addition to learning martial arts and how to defend themselves, the students will learn to interact with others and gain valuable social skills via drills and games. A large portion of this program is dedicated to teaching the students self-control, focus, and confidence.

 Wolves (7-12 yrs)

 Our Wolves program has classes and curriculum that are designed specifically to instill leadership skills in our students and provide them a roadmap to success-not only in martial arts, but life in general. These classes are an ideal way to build self-confidence and self worth and give them the tools they need to overcome any obstacles that get in their way.

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques (both standing and on the ground), from a variety of other combat sports. In the unpredictable world we live in, Martial Arts is a natural choice for self-defense, safety, and peace of mind. We have laws to protect us from violence and crime, but we cannot rely on law enforcement alone or expect them to provide us 24/7 protection. Do not live in fear of being attacked. Arm yourself with the knowledge, skills and power of Martial Arts.

Women-Only Classes

The most important thing to our team, is making sure everyone has a comfortable training environment.  Over the years, we have heard it time & time again: Women prefer to train with other women!  We offer a weekly Ladies only class on Saturdays from 9-10am.  Taught by the 2021 Purple Belt Master's World Champion herself, Sanja Milutinovic Bass.  Sanja has been training at Gustavo Rocky Mount for 8 years & she's looking forward to helping you meet your fitness, wellness, or self-defense goals in 2022.
