Grappling Program

Brazilian Jui-Jitsu is a dramatically different and effective fighting art of South America. It emphasizes ground fighting techniques like; sweeps, throws, locks and submission holds. One on one, Brazilian fighters can be quite formidable once they close the gap between an opponent and themselves. These techniques of ground fighting have been thrust into the public spotlight over the last ten years by the success of several Brazilian "Ultimate" mixed arts championships.

We will definitely cover this art with more information.
