General Information

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the world’s premier grappling art, combining skill, strategy, and quickness into a nearly unbeatable mix of submission holds, wrestling takedowns, and reversals.  At its best, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combination of wrestling and human chess, requiring stamina and fitness but also a sharp mind.  It’s unique from other martial arts in its unwavering devotion to form: physical strength is important but not paramount – technique trumps everything, and proper technique and leverage have allowed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu masters to regularly defeat opponents two and three times their size.

General Information

Judo, translated as the “gentle way”, is a martial art which teaches the use of balance, momentum, and timing to overcome your opponent.  “Akari Judo” can mean either “Enlightened Judo” or “Effortless Judo”, and those are both ideals that we strive towards, seeking to use the aggressor’s own strength against them and prevail with minimum effort.

General Information

Grappling is also known as “no-gi jiu jitsu” or “submission wrestling.”  Our instructors believe in teaching all aspects of grappling, and our classes reflect that: here, you’ll learn not only how to apply and escape submissions, but to gain and maintain the kind of positioning that can help you control and dominate your opponent.
