Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu needs no introduction. Anyone who has ever seen a UFC event has seen the devastating submission techniques, takedowns, and dominating positional control that BJJ has to offer. While MMA is a combination of BJJ, wrestling, and kickboxing, the Gracie Family has proven that without BJJ, a fighter will be submitted quickly and easily. As for fitness, there is no equal to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The pushing, pulling, twisting, and cardio involved in our daily sparring sessions will make any other workout seem too easy.
There is no question that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best martial art out there for self-defense as well. BJJ offers daily practice with a RESISTING opponent (many other “self-defense” martial arts cannot offer this) in a SAFE environment. You will learn how to escape when someone considerably larger than you is holding you down, you will learn how to take someone down and end altercations quickly and easily.
