Beginner 101 and All Level Jiu Jitsu

We offer self defense, wrestling and primarily jiu jitsu to all ages and all levels. Our program is a no-gi style of jiujitsu that focuses on clinching and a clear path to a submission. The style was created after seeing high level jiujitsu players losing fights in MMA. The no-gi approach wasn’t dependent on grips of the gi, but rather over hooks and under hooks in the clinch. The lineage of our academy traces back to Jean Jacques Machado, Eddie Bravo, Josh Passini. Our head instructor has studied jiu jitsu for over a decade, and has attended seminars with the absolute best practitioners of our day. He is always traveling to seek higher knowledge, which is why our academy is competitive and wins gold, silver and bronze every single time we compete in larger metro areas such as Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis.
