    Brazilian Jui-Jitsu

    Got a problem with a giant? All you need is a little leverage. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) teaches that when it comes to physical confrontation, smarts, body positioning, and joint manipulation will win out over size and strength just about any time. That's why BJJ has risen to become the one of the popular martial arts for self-defense in recent years. This class offers a safe, controlled environment to pick up the fundamentals of this exciting style and develop your situational intelligence through practice and repetition.
