BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU                    

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, translated as "the gentle art," is widely recognized as the most effective martial art on the planet. Using leverage and proper technique, Jiu-Jitsu allows a weaker, smaller person to defend themselves against a stronger, larger attacker. Since its introduction it has become one of the most in-demand martial arts styles in the United States. 



Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is particularly effective for children because of its non-violent nature. Some of the benefits include:




*Positive Self-Esteem

*Setting goals and following through



Jiu-Jitsu lends itself perfectly to the realm of self-defense. Jiu-Jitsu was developed as a way for a smaller, weaker person to take control of a larger, stronger opponent. The marital art teaches students to use their brains to out maneuver an adversary and place themselves in a position of control. Jiu-Jitsu is much less violent than other striking martial arts, which allows student to train at a pace and intensity similar to a real fight without the same risk of injury. 



Striking is a great way to stay in shape, keep your heart rate up, and learn self-defense. We offer Striking classes as well as classes that combine striking and grappling to add skills to our students' repertoires.
