We are a family-based dojo. We are open all year round for new students. Come for a FREE class to experience the martial arts style of the moment - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu! Also known as BJJ or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, it is the most effective Self-Defense style of our days, as most of the techniques take place on the ground. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is fun to learn and any person, no matter what gender, age of fitness level, can do it. Check out our website and we hope you visit us for a FREE TRIAL LESSON. Our introductory lessons re held on Saturdays at 10am. For weeknight trial lessons please call or email us in advance. Obrigado!
