The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu philosophy is to always keep sight of the fact that it is a self defense art. They strive to preserve traditional principles and techniques, while embracing new concepts and ideas. Our program is open to all people. Since they emphasize proper technical execution, understanding leverage and timing means that participants do not have to be strong or fast or athletic to learn Jiu Jitsu. Their atmosphere here is laid back and welcoming and pride themselves on helping new students and making everyone comfortable in an environment that fosters learning.
