This has been transformational for our 12 year old who was having a difficult time becoming a teen. This has given her the confidence to hold her head high when walking into a room instead of looking down and being afraid. She looks forward to class and is gaining so much strength physically! They make getting in shape FUN!

Fantastic BJJ school for all skill levels. The instructors give one on one attention to everyone and make you feel like family as soon as you walk in the door.

I started coming to this school some time in the summer last year, back then I really had no self confidence and I was pretty much a scared kid. But coming here has made my self esteem shoot through the roof, along with my self confidence. Im always looking forward to training, and I love being able to learn new technique. This place is amazing.

The Ultimate New Years Resolution

The New Year is here, and with thousands of goals and resolutions in sight as well,

2017 is the year you should try something new!

Jiu-jitsu is an established system that can better the entirety of your being.

Whether you need mental benefits like furthering your discipline muscle, physical

benefits like getting in shape, or maybe you’re just looking to make some new friends;

jiu-jitsu is for you.


3 Jiu-jitsu Benefits


The most common New Year’s resolution you will hear is to get in better shape.

The physical benefits from jiu-jitsu are obvious.

Jiu-jitsu will get you in shape in a way you find fun. Your body gets more comfortable

with itself, so you have better control over your physical abilities as well.

Needless to say, arming yourself with the self defense tactics from jiu-jitsu makes

you better equipped to deal with some of the more dangerous physical obstacles in life.

Really, jiu-jitsu is more than just physical improvement.



Looking for more discipline, focus, and awareness?

There are several jiu-jitsu benefits, but the greatest is the mental toughness.

Jiu-jitsu helps connect your mind with your brain. It helps your mind gain the

necessary control it needs to do this. It helps you find comfort in stressful situations.

Maybe you want to be more adventurous, less scared of the world, or more adjusted to

your own body?

It’s more than just kicking and punching. The spiritual benefits are plenty. There has

always been a strong connection between the zen world and jiu-jitsu. This mental

improvement can help you deal with your anxiety, your depression, and any other

negative mental stressor that is plaguing your day to day.



The social benefits of jiu-jitsu are often overlooked.

Maybe you’ve gotten in with the wrong crowd, and have decided that you need to add

fresh faces to your life. Maybe you just need some new friends.

The jiu-jitsu community is one of the friendliest, most supportive, and inspiring

groups of people you will ever find. It’s a great place to make lifelong friends and


You will find that the jiu-jitsu world is fascinating on it’s own, and that you could

spend a whole lifetime indulging in some of its pleasantries.

You will get addicted to the lifestyle and your new friends will be able to empathize.

Why just pick one New Year’s resolution this year when you can be apart of something

that covers so much more than just one improvement?

This new year, you could be smarter, healthier, calmer, and happier.
