Gracie Jiu-Jitsu – also called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ – is a practical martial art for self-defense. It’s also a combat sport popularized in UFC fights and a lifestyle for fitness and self-discipline. If you are interested in self-improvement, the BJJ classes offered by New Mexico Jiu-Jitsu Academy offers everything you need to get started with the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle!
Competitive Martial Arts
Our primary focus is on self-defense and practical martial arts applications, but our BJJ classes do have an element of sports practice. Many students enroll as a path toward fitness, and the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle incorporates many aspects of good health – including a balanced diet and development of strength and endurance.
One of the great benefits of learning martial arts for self-defense is that you carry this knowledge and skill with you wherever you go. While you can lose a weapon, you will never lose an innate skill like BJJ; once you have mastered our techniques, you can walk confidently knowing that you have the ability to protect yourself in any close combat situation.
We offer bully prevention and self-defense classes to children and adults. We also offer private training for busy professionals who may not have time to attend our other BJJ classes. If you are interested in learning more about our program, contact us today! You can try us for 10 days of unlimited classes with our no-obligation free trial.
