Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not just a sport, it’s a martial art whose guiding principle proves that a much smaller and weaker person can defend themselves against a larger opponent by utilizing leverage, angles, and techniques. BJJ will change your life! The classes teach mind and body awareness, self-defense tactics, all while building lasting relationships with teammates and instructors. Acquiring the BJJ lifestyle results in improved mental focus, increased self-confidence, and an overall healthier way of life.
Our goal is to keep kids physically and socially active as they bond and have fun with new friends in a positive and nurturing environment. Enrolling your children in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes self-respect and respect for others, self-discipline, increases your child’s level of self-confidence, and teaches problem solving techniques, all while giving them the ability to protect and defend themselves.
(Note: The safety of our kids is a top priority at our schools. Any child under the age of 6 will be evaluated by our instructors during their initial free trial to make sure they are physically capable of learning, retaining, and executing the techniques in a safe way).
Whether you are a seasoned competitor or a beginner, women of all ages and athletic abilities are welcome to try a class and become a member of JCBJJ! The benefits include: improved fitness level, increased confidence and attainment of self-defense knowledge.

The object of No-GI is to use a variety of joint locks and chokes to win by submission or by points. Competitions in this sport resemble Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions, although competitors do not wear GI's. The lack of a GI increases the speed and athleticism required, and also limits the sweeping and submission options of the competitors.
