When someone from any other martial art falls on their back - it's game over. When someone who knows BJJ falls on their back - the fun is just getting started. It's proved that over 90% of all physical altercations-Schoolyard, Street, Combat Sports fights will end up on the ground. Learn unstoppable grappling & submission techniques... get in the best shape of your life... and meet other like-minded people who thrive off of the intensity of BJJ. It's like a family here. And if you're a BJJ-kind-of-person - you'll fit right in. We live in the era of video game, tv, internet, cable TV, and fast food. Inactivity, high calorie diet, physical education cut backs, and lack of time are a growing part of our world’s culture. Martial Arts gives children a positive way to burn calories and socialize with quality friends in a safe setting. It also keeps them away from the television. Your child will learn important life skills including:

    *Confidence *Loyalty

    *Integrity *Honor

    *Leadership *Self-Discipline

    *Respect *Goal Setting

    *Self-Control *Courtesy

    *Perseverance *Increase Fitness
