Why Choose Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a very intimate art. Your body is constantly in a push-or-pull exchange with your opponent, and as such, physical conditioning is an important part of this program.

Flexibility is developed in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, as your flexibility improves, so will your Jiu Jitsu.

It's a proven fact that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can considerably help to improve your;

Overall Mood | Outlook on Life | Self Confidence
Self Discipline Self Respect Self Defence

As well as bringing you together with a
welcoming and supportive community that's just like a second family
