Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the ultimate in anti-bully training for kids. We start by building their confidence so they are less likely targets for bullies. Then, we show them how to protect themselves, without resorting to unnecessary violence.

Student Success Story:

"Best instructor and greatest coach ever! As a woman this place taught me so much that I can use in my daily life to feel safe when I am out. As a mother, Coach Anthony took the time to teach my son not only the basics but also taught him self-esteem. He has used this to stand up to bullies in Middle School and to stand-up for his friends."

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu… The World’s Most Potent Self-Defense Method, That Anyone Can Do!

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is, without a doubt, the world’s most potent self-defense method. For decades now, the effectiveness of GJJ has proven time and again, both in the competitive arena and more recently on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, the U.S Army based their Modern Army Combatives system on the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and it has saved countless soldiers’ lives overseas.

And just what makes GJJ so effective for self-defense? It’s simple. Unlike other martial arts that focus on striking and kicking, jiu-jitsu’s emphasis is on taking the fight to the ground and ending it there, fast.

The fact is, most people don’t have a clue how to fight on the ground. Which is strange, because that’s where most fights end up! So, when you learn how to defend yourself with jiu-jitsu, you’re learning to defend yourself in a way that most attackers can’t defend against.

This gives you an insane advantage, should you ever be attacked.

We Train For Real, In The Safest Way Possible

Another thing that makes jiu-jitsu so effective is the way we train, with full resistance in every class. Meaning, unlike other styles there’s no make believe in jiu-jitsu. While most martial art systems make you learn choreographed moves that are more like a dance than real fighting, in GJJ nothing is choreographed or rehearsed.

And why is that so important?

Because real fights aren’t rehearsed. And while you might be able to get your buddy to attack you a certain way in the dojo (so you can defend his move with just the right move, knowing how he’s going to attack) nobody in real life is going to attack you like that.

Real fights happen spontaneously, so you need to train for spontaneity. And in GJJ, we specialize in being spontaneous. In every single class, you’re going to be practicing with a partner who is resisting your moves.

So, when you learn jiu-jitsu, you’ll know you can actually apply the moves against a resisting, combative opponent.

You'll Get Fit Fast With Gracie Jiu-Jitsu!

And not only is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu great for self-defense, it’s also a fantastic workout. Due to our unique method of training, jiu-jitsu classes will get you in the best shape of your life.

As it turns out, grappling against a resisting partner is hard work… and a heck of a lot of fun, too! In every class, you’ll be sweating and burning calories like mad while you perfect skills that can save your life.

In fact, it’s not uncommon for students to lose 10, 20, or even 30 pounds in their first few months of jiu-jitsu training.
