Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a self-defense martial art based on grappling, ground fighting and
submission holds. BJJ approaches self-defense by emphasizing taking an opponent to the ground, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force
them into a submission via joint locks or chokeholds.

Submission Grappling is also known as submission fighting or simply as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu.
It takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage or
disadvantage of a uniform to grab on to. The difference between BJJ and submission
grappling is in the grips. In the stand-up game, the grips provided by the BJJ uniform
allow for many takedowns or throws, while submission grappling take-downs resemble
those of traditional wrestling. Grips also come into play on the ground. Where the BJJ
ground game is methodical and technical, submission grappling moves tend to be more
fluid and fast-paced. NO-GI classes are a great compliment to the traditional BJJ GI
We will use our years of training and experience to educate our kids about BULLYING
and empower them to use Verbal Self-Defense to neutralize and or mitigate a potential
encounter with a “Bully”.
Stranger danger is a concept taught to children. We utilize our years of experience
coupled with the trainings we have received to teach our kids how to be safe and how to
differentiate between “good strangers” and “bad strangers”. Awareness is the key!
