Juniors

Tiny GI

This is the perfect class for young kids who want to develop coordination, discipline, and important values like respect and teamwork!

Tinys offers a fun and safe environment to introduce kids to the exciting world of jiu-jitsu, where they will learn the basic movements and techniques that will set the foundation for their journey

Junior Gi  8+

Junior class is the next class up for ages 8 years and above. Here you can still learn the basics & advanced strategies in a similar age group.

This structured learning environment is perfect for juniors who want to develop and advance their understanding of the sport. Opportunities to compete in local tournaments can put their skills to the test and show off their progress.

Junior No Gi  8+

The class is perfect for juniors who are eager to develop their skills and take their understanding of No-Gi JiuJitsu to the next level.

Without the added grips and friction provided by the traditional Gi uniform, practitioners must rely on different techniques and strategies to control their opponents and execute submissions. This is more similar to the clothing that one might wear in everyday life.

Adults

Adult Beginners

Adult beginners who want to learn jiu-jitsu in a supportive environment can start here. Whether you want to develop strength, flexibility, or coordination, this class will help you achieve your goals. 

You'll also be introduced to a supportive community of jiu-jitsu practitioners, making this a great place to start your journey and have some camaraderie and laughs along the way.

Adult All Levels

This is the class for adult jiu-jitsu practitioners who want to train and refine their skills with individuals of varying abilities. 

This challenging environment will help experienced practitioners push their limits and continue developing their abilities, while also encouraging the sharing of knowledge and techniques among the participants. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or just starting out, this class is for you!

Adult No Gi

Our Adult No-Gi class is the perfect opportunity to refine your technique and challenge yourself in new ways. With a focus on grappling without the traditional gi, you'll develop agility, speed, and a dynamic approach to your game. You'll learn new techniques that will enhance your overall ability. 

Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, our Adult No-Gi class will push you to new heights. Join us for a session today!
