Fundamental Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the single most effective martial art you can learn for self defense. Unlike most martial arts, Jiu Jitsu doesn’t rely on size and strength. It’s all about leverage and joint manipulation.

A smaller person could easily use BJJ techniques to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent. Since real-world fights often end up on the ground, training in a martial art that focuses exclusively on ground combat is both practical and prudent. An added bonus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is that it will get you in shape.

Lessons Include:

  • ​Headlock and Pinned Down Escapes
  • Escaping Bear Hugs, Body Locks and Chokes
  • Solutions to counter sucker punches, kicks and takedown attempts
  • Knife, Gun and other Deadly Object Defensive Tactics​

Best of all, with Jiu Jitsu, exercise is fun, never a chore.

Women's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
