Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is easy and fun to learn, but takes hard work, discipline, and dedication to master. Our focus is maintaining the highest level of instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, training with a partner in every class so you quickly learn what works—and what doesn’t—against an opponent who is resisting. We emphasize technique and positioning, which often dictate the outcome of a confrontation, whether in competition or self-defense.
Both gi and no-gi classes are comprised of a brief warm-up, guard passing drills, positional drills, and technique training. We offer a full schedule of daytime and evening classes, so get in touch to try an entire week for free!
The Fundamentals is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the core techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and since safety is our number one concern. Upon achieving 2 stripes in this program you will qualify for the Advanced program!
Our Advanced Program is simply the next layer of techniques which include additional and more advanced controls, escapes, submissions, submissions counters, additional self-defense techniques, and weapon training.
Learn the Techniques
We have divided the Basic techniques into 45 one-hour classes so that you can complete the course at your own pace. We designed each lesson so that you can start at any point in the course. As a result, you can complete the 45 lessons in any order without feeling overwhelmed or confused. Upon enrolling, we will track your progress every step of the way.

Grand Masters Carlos and Helio Gracie believed that
the principles of efficiency, patience, and control held the
key to success in all aspects of life.
Here's the story on how Brazilian Jiu Jitsu all began
At a very young age, Helio Gracie learned traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques from his older brother, Carlos. In the late 1920s, he began to modify these techniques to accommodate his frail physique with the objective of developing a system that would enable him to defend himself against larger opponents. After years of refinement, he proved his art’s effectiveness by routinely defeating larger and stronger opponents, some of whom outweighed him by as much as 100 pounds. As a result, Helio’s techniques quickly became the new expression of Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil and set the stage for a worldwide revolution in martial arts.
In 1967, under Grand Master Helio Gracie’s guidance, jiu-jitsu practitioners established the first Federation of Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil to host recreational competitions in which they could test their self-defense skills in a safe setting.
In 1978, Rorion Gracie, Helio’s eldest son, left Brazil and came to the United States to share his father’s techniques with the rest of the world. Upon his arrival, he immediately noticed that most Americans had no appreciation for jiu-jitsu’s effectiveness. Even those with knowledge of martial arts confused his family’s system with the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu that had been in America since the 1950s.
Rorion spent several years teaching out of his garage while leading a one-man campaign to open the eyes of American martial artists to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s simplicity and effectiveness and concluded that, despite his tireless and constant efforts, he needed a more powerful and visible way to demonstrate the superiority of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu over all other martial arts. To accomplish this, he created the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
