WHY JIU JITSU?

Improved strength

Enhanced coordination

Stimulated mind

The mechanics of jiu jitsu range widely in complexity; there are moves (and speeds) for every level participant.

Excelling in this "human chess" demands high-level strategy and problem solving.

A social but individually-driven sport

 

Jiu jitsu is not a team sport; you are the driving force behind your own advancement.

 

But you can't roll alone...and you'll meet other talented, like-minded people at our classes.

A workout with real-world applications

 

It's said that most fights end up on the ground; that's exactly the position our sport is structured around.

Jiu jitsu helps level the playing field between opponents of different sizes, so it's especially relevant for women and kids.
