Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, "The Gentle Art"
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective martial art on the planet. It is designed for people of all sizes to successfully defend themselves. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique style that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art. At our academy we focus heavily on the martial art and self defense style of jiu-jitsu.
