What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
The martial arts style we teach was developed in the 1920s by Helio Gracie, a Judo practitioner who modified the techniques of Judo to make them easier for even a small or weak person to complete successfully. This is what makes Brazilian or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu so powerful: It provides an advantage to women, children, the elderly and anyone else who might face a stronger and larger opponent.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a practical martial art that can be applied to real combat situations. If you are attacked by a mugger, a bully, a rapist or anyone else looking to do harm, you can neutralize the threat with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes for Adults and Children
We offer our classes for students of all ages. Among adults, our program provides practical techniques for avoiding altercations and neutralizing threats, including how to gain the upper hand in a fight with an armed opponent. Our children’s program has a special focus on bully prevention, addressing the circumstances that lead to bullying and how to neutralize the situation before it gets physical.
Unlike other martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is non-confrontational: Ours is primarily a defensive art and is used for self-protection, not aggression. This makes it a very popular choice for parents who wish to provide their children with self-discipline and the ability to protect themselves.
