Intro Class

If you are new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with no prior grappling experience, this class is for you. This one-on-one class will help you understand how jiu jitsu can be used in your daily life and how to incorporate the “gentle art” into your overall lifestyle. Primarily used to understand the basics, the intro class will still leave you feeling accomplished and feeling like you learned something on your very first day.


It is all about the foundation. Our Fundamentals Methodology, also known as our curriculum, is essential to set the beginner’s path to success. The curriculum consists of 20 classes, numbered internally #1-#20, and teaches the student to use techniques, progression of the fight, and connection of techniques to achieve a safe submission. Self-defense is part of the curriculum, so it is suitable for anyone interested in working on the basics and practical jiu jitsu and gives a great foundation for sport jiu jitsu.

Once the student has completed those 20 classes on the curriculum 3 times, or 60 classes total, the student is ready to join our Intermediate class and start sparring. (Also known as ‘rolling’).

Intermediate Classes are suitable for a White Belt with 2 stripes and higher. The program has 36 classes and it is when the student starts to understand the connections between different positions and combinations of moves to achieve the submission or ‘points’ as it relates to sport jiu jitsu. This class contains specific positional training and traditional sparring.


Our Advanced Classes are designed for Blue Belts and higher. The advanced class is when we put together strategies to always be ahead of the game. We work on the same technique and its progression for weeks at a time, with an intense focus on developing a game plan and its variables.

No Gi

There’s a saying in jiu jitsu that says “No Gi, no problem” since it is a popular style between grapplers, wrestlers, and MMA fighters. Because of the absence of a Gi, which allows different grips to control the opponent, it is faster and a more aggressive style of jiu-jitsu, but equally challenging mentally. We suggest our students practice both Gi and No Gi classes as it one serves as complementary to the other.

Made for the real world, BJJ is a form of self-defense that every person should master. BJJ focuses on ground-level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques. This makes Jiu Jitsu ideal when learning how to take on an opponent who may be larger than you, without necessarily having to hurt them.


With such a fast pace, you’ll be burning tons of calories while practicing Jiu Jitsu. While BJJ is likely to help you shed a few pounds, it’s going to make you a stronger athlete in every respect. Jiu Jitsu is known for increasing flexibility, building muscle mass, quickening reflexes, and improving coordination. If you’re a multi-sport athlete, Jiu Jitsu is about to become your best friend.
