Since its arrival in the United States in the 1980s, Jiu-Jitsu has experienced an unprecedented popularity, with its practitioners creating a real culture of their own.

Getting in shape and gaining confidence should not be a huge chore made up of boring gym workouts you dread daily.  And most importantly, it is not something you have to face alone!

Chief Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Gary Padilla brings over 20 years of experience to our classes. Mr. Padilla earned his black belt directly under legendary Jean Jacques Machado. He consistently brings cutting-edge material to each class.

Learn to Defend Yourself Against Large Attackers

Get in the Best Shape Of Your Life and Learn to Protect Yourself!

Jiu-Jitsu is widely considered one of the most effective form of self-defense in the world, and has become hugely popular especially with the explosion of UFC. The primary goal of Jiu Jitsu is to control a resisting opponent in ways that force him into submission by grappling.

Much of the technique of BJJ is centered around taking down an opponent on the ground and wrestling to control and render him harmless.

With proper technique, a BJJ practitioner can overcome opponents of a much bigger size. No kicks, no punches … let’s roll!

Our Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program

Because most if not all hand to hand attacks end up on the ground, today's Martial Artist needs to grapple WELL if they expect to win. That’s why we’ve developed our Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program to really boost your ground game. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing it for competition, or self-defense. We’ll show you everything you need to succeed.

Self-Defense for the Real World

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a unique program that truly teaches self-defense for the real world. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self-defense in the shortest possible time.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu to create the art.

It contains stand-up maneuvers, but it is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques. Gaining superior positioning—so one can apply the style’s numerous chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations on an opponent—is the key in BJJ.
