Adult's Jiu Jitsu


The success of the "Gracie Challenge" and the creation of MMA through organizations such as the UFC showed to the world the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu system has been proven countless times in the ring and on the street. The world wide success of BJJ inspired the synthesis of grappling and striking arts. It is a fundamental part of a combat athlete's skill set because... it works. Trust the technique.

Being required in basic training in every branch of the U.S. Military, and used and recommended by all law enforcement and government agencies, serves as a testimony to it’s effectiveness. The Gracie Family showcased it’s supremacy over all other martial arts in a competition of styles, which is now known as the UFC. Unmatched by any other style, fighters were forced to incorporate BJJ into their styles, which is now known as MMA, since only BJJ can defend against BJJ. This supreme unmatched art is a science of submission/ ground fighting. Through techniques of balance, leverage, and momentum, it enables one to control and subdue an attacker using chokeholds and locks. Designed for the smaller person to be able to defend themselves against a larger/stronger aggressor, with the option of not having to hurt the other person. With the adults program we instill in our students compassion, truthfulness, loyalty, honor, courage, respect, and discipline. It is the backbone of our academy.
