Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Historically, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was taught in the gi. The majority of positions and techniques were originated in the gi. Our program balances fundamentals and modern approaches to Jiu Jitsu. We work to avoid dogmatic approaches in order to provide our students the most current approaches to grappling. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, taught in the Gi is our largest program.
No Gi Submission Grappling
Submission grappling has rapidly evolved in recent times, and encompasses a variety of rules sets and organizations. In our program, we teach a comprehensive representation of submission grappling using the ADCC rule set. We integrate wrestling based take downs with traditional jiu jitsu ground work. As students progress, they will begin to learn the intricacies of the modern leg lock game. Our goal is to equip our students, whether hobbyist, competitive grappler or MMA fighter with the breadth of submission grappling techniques. We offer leg lock specific training on Friday evening.
