General Information

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the world’s premier grappling art, combining skill, strategy, and quickness into a nearly unbeatable mix of submission holds, wrestling takedowns, and reversals.  At its best, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combination of wrestling and human chess, requiring stamina and fitness but also a sharp mind.  It’s unique from other martial arts in its unwavering devotion to form: physical strength is important but not paramount – technique trumps everything, and proper technique and leverage have allowed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu masters to regularly defeat opponents two and three times their size.

 

Coaches: Rick McCoy, Jake Young, Kevin Knudsen, Lloyd Baldwin
