Jiu Jitsu



Jiu-Jitsu is a wonderful and at times magical Martial Art. Its ability to enable a weaker and smaller but well trained person to overcome size and strength is unmatched by any other Martial Art. Those that stay the course and begin to see the immense potential they have within this Art will be rewarded with a new found confidence and a life long passion for learning.

"Always assume that your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger and faster than you; so that you learn to rely on technique, timing and leverage rather than brute strength." ― Helio Gracie
