IMAGINE YOU HAD TO DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST A LARGER, STRONGER OPPONENT.
Not necessarily. That’s exactly what Brazilian Jiu-jitsu teaches you to do using leverage, positioning, locks and chokes to neutralize an opponent.
Gracie (Brazilian) Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a highly effective self-defense system of ground fighting. It is designed to allow people of all sizes to defend themselves in a real world situation that goes to the ground.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu does this by the detailed study of correct body mechanics, timing, and placement. This is good for the student because the methods are not based on strength or speed so the skills will not fade as will strength and speed.
This is also in line with the self-defense mindset of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, meaning your training should prepare you for a street encounter where you don’t get to choose what weight class you will be fighting in.
Classes are taught by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts: Professor Chris Bumgarner and Professor Mike Wescott. Both certified Gracie instructors, who enjoy teaching men, women, and kids in a safe and fun atmosphere.
Come find out what makes BJJ such a successful and exciting art. All levels welcome. Adults, teens, and children’s classes available.
