ima-weblogo-resized2Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts around. It’s predecessor, Jiu Jitsu, was originally developed so that unarmed villagers could defend themselves from the samurai of Japan. Since striking would prove ineffective against the armor of the samurai, practitioners of Jiu Jitsu could use the attacker’s energy against them, employing pins, joint locks, and throws.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an excellent option for just about anyone who want to learn self-defense, as well as someone who wants to exercise themselves mentally while exercising their body.

It’s For Men

Men come in all shapes and sizes, with some of them working out all the time while others just can’t seem to put on the muscles. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is excellent at leveling the playing field, allowing a smaller person to overcome a much larger and stronger opponent. If you’re a man who never thought that he could complete because of your size, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu might be the martial art for you.

It’s For Women

Nature has decided that, in many cases, women won’t become as physically strong as a man who puts the same effort into a workout regimen. Because strength isn’t as much of a deciding factor as it is with many martial arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help to level the playing field. Our BJJ classes can help women take control of every situation, getting exercise and learning self-defense at the same time.

It’s For Kids

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the king of grappling, and that’s why we’ve included it as part of our kids’ mixed martial arts program. Because BJJ involves no striking, it’s an excellent skill for kids to have when they want to diffuse a violent situation while not appearing to be the aggressor (like they would if the other kid had a bloody nose!)

BJJ is a wonderful option when you’re looking for an incredibly efficient martial art. Contact us today and we can set up a time for you to take a look at one of our classes.
