What You Can Expect in Every Class...

Physical Warm Up Exercise

Every BJJ class begins with a dynamic warm-up to elevate students' heart rates and prepare their bodies for the practice ahead. These warm-ups may include exercises like jogging, jumping jacks, and stretching, which help to increase blood flow, loosen up muscles, and prevent injuries during training.

Technique Instruction

Each class features detailed instruction on a specific technique, complete with demonstrations by the instructor. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback, ensuring they understand the technique thoroughly and can execute it correctly during live training.

Live Training or Sparring

Live training, also known as sparring, is a crucial component of BJJ classes, allowing students to practice techniques and apply them in real-world scenarios with actual opponents. This stage also provides a unique opportunity for more experienced students to teach and mentor their less experienced counterparts, fostering a supportive learning environment and promoting continuous growth within the BJJ community.

A Closer Look Into Our Classes

Incorporating Our Top 5 Fundamentals of Every Kids Martial Arts Class:


Warm Up

A proper warm-up is essential for preparing the body and mind for the challenges ahead. In every class, we begin with a dynamic warm-up that includes exercises such as jogging, stretching, and mobility drills. This warm-up not only helps prevent injuries but also sets the stage for effective learning and skill development.



The core of any BJJ class revolves around teaching fundamental techniques that form the foundation of the martial art. By breaking down each technique into easy-to-understand steps, students can grasp the concepts more efficiently, while experienced practitioners can refine their skills and deepen their understanding.


Drilling & Repetition

Mastery of BJJ techniques requires consistent practice and repetition. In our classes, we allocate ample time for drilling, allowing students to practice the techniques they've learned under the watchful eye of the instructor. This focused practice helps solidify muscle memory and ensures students can execute techniques effectively during live training.



The final and most crucial step in running an outstanding BJJ class is incorporating live training, also known as sparring. Sparring allows students to apply the techniques they've learned in a real-world scenario, helping them develop timing, strategy, and adaptability. Furthermore, sparring provides an opportunity for more experienced students to mentor their less experienced counterparts, fostering a sense of community and mutual growth.

Every Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class at our academy is engaging, educational, and enjoyable for practitioners of all levels.

Our approach differs from other martial arts by emphasizing technique, strategy, and adaptability over physical strength, making BJJ accessible to a wider range of individuals and promoting personal growth through continuous learning.

We're More Than Just a Training Facility

At our academy, we believe BJJ is more than just a martial art - it's a way of life.

This means we strive to create an environment that goes beyond technique instruction and live training. We foster camaraderie among students and instructors, promote open communication between all members, and encourage everyone to challenge themselves in order to reach their maximum potential. We also provide social activities such as barbecues and game nights that allow individuals from different backgrounds to come together as a community and share experiences outside the dojo walls.

By creating these opportunities for meaningful connections, we build an environment based on mutual respect and understanding that promotes personal growth through friendship and collaboration.
