JIU-JITSU //

GRAPPLING

OUR JIU-JITSU CLASSES

GI JIU-JITSU

Utilize the jiu jitsu uniform to out-maneuver or submit your opponent by controlling their sleeves, collars, pants, and belt. This style is slower-paced and more technical compared to no-gi.

NO-GI JIU-JITSU

On the contrary, no-gi is a faster and more explosive style of jiu jitsu. While the fundamental positions are the same, many of the grips mimic those of wrestling, providing an excellent segue to former wrestlers.

HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

ADAPTABLE SCHEDULE

If you work or study full time and/or have a family, then your time is limited. We have some classes that start while other gyms are closing for the day. Our morning, lunch, and evening classes are designed to give you time to go home, eat, shower, rest, etc., and then come to class or do class first and the rest after you are done. 

NO ANNUAL CONTRACT OR FEES

We believe signing annual contracts is straight up shady. That is why we do month-to-month. You can cancel anytime by emailing us. Additionally, we don't do any enrollment or cancellation fees because we believe in transparency.

PATIENT AND FRIENDLY INSTRUCTORS

Our biggest differentiation is our instructors. They are patient and work well with all types of students. Our goal is for you to learn in an environment where you feel the most comfortable. With over 10 instructors, you can learn from 10 unique styles! Read about our coaching philosophy.

DERRICK DEMAIO

BJJ BLACK BELT

Derrick is a big kid at heart and strives to see everyone he knows do better. Specifically, he designed the Fundamentals Jiu-Jitsu class because he remembered what it was like to be brand new and to not know a thing.
