WHY JIU JITSU

DISCIPLINE

Through lessons with our professors, teach yourself discipline in much more than jiu jitsu.

FITNESS

SELF DEFENSE

Brazilian jiu jitsu is the best martial art form if you want to learn how to easily defend yourself against a larger adversary using leverage and proper technique.

FRIENDSHIP

BJJ is much more than a martial art. We pride ourselves on the bonds we create with our students, and which our students create among themselves.

POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT

Our professors take it as their responsibility to teach their students to stand up for themselves with love and respect and fight for happiness.

SELF ESTEEM

The aftermath of successful BJJ training is not only increased ability to fend for yourself, but also a great boost of self esteem as you’ve mastered a new skill.

THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU PHILOSOPHY

Some of the core values of the Gracie Brazlian jiu jitsu. Much more than a martial art, jiu jitsu is a way of life.

EFFICIENCY

The ability to perform with maximum output given minimal input. It is always presumed your attacker will be larger, so you will learn how to get the most out of yourself while conserving your own energy.

PATIENCE

In a conflict with a larger opponent, patience is frequently the path to success. It often happens that the least exhausted person wins, and not the strongest person.

CONTROL

The aim of a fight is to impose dominance over your opponent, after which they quickly surrender. This is achieved with control, both over the opponent and yourself.

Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Gracie Brazlian Jiu Jitsu is much more than a martial art. It’s a way of life relying on the principles of efficiency, patience and control.

The aim is not only to acquire the self-defense skills to overpower a much larger opponent, but also to perfect yourself in the process and achieve success in all aspects of life.
