Adult Jiu-Jitsu

Get In Shape. Build Confidence. Defend Yourself.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a real-world self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting to promote the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage. This often includes taking the fight to the ground and applying joint-locks and chokeholds to subdue an attacker. Gracie Jiu Jitsu training is used by the average person everyday for self-defense, law enforcement and military combatives, mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions and sport grappling tournaments.

  • Learn real-world self defense techniques
  • Gain self-confidence, awareness, and a new level of fitness
  • Get healthy meal plans that are easy to make and actually tasty

Always assume that your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger and faster than you; so that you learn to rely on technique, timing and leverage rather than brute strength.
