We are the areas most established Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy under Gustavo Machado. BJJ is a martial art and self-defense system focusing on grappling and ground fighting. Often referred to as a combat sport, BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a larger, stronger attacker using leverage and proper technique. Taking the fight to the ground is the goal, most notably by applying joint-locks and choke-holds to defeat your opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi or no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, as well. Live drilling and sparring, commonly referred to as "rolling," are training fundamentals. BJJ places a premium on performance, especially in competition. Progression through its exclusive belt system is highly coveted, with less than 3% of BJJ practitioners earning a black belt.
We offer training for all levels of experience: Beginner to Advanced.
Men, Women, and Children are welcome!
