BJJ, “the gentle art”, is a martial art that focuses on grappling techniques. BJJ uses a series of leverages, and techniques to allow a smaller person to defend him/herself against a larger, stronger opponent. It is excellent for self-defence for this very reason. It has been a staple for many fighters, and is most widely known for its effectiveness highlighted in MMA (mixed martial arts) competition, most notably in the UFC. We offer youth Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes for ages 7-16.
