Mother's Month Special!
Happy Mother's Month! During the entire month of May we're offering all mothers a FREE Jiu-Jitsu uniform when they sign up for any of our Beginner's Programs.
You may choose to either attend the women-only program or co-ed, which gives you more days to train. The program is recurring, which means it repeats itself after 12 weeks. You can start the program at any time and complete the 12 lessons in any order.
Most of our current female students started in the women-only class and added the co-ed classes to their training (recommended).
$30 yearly due
$79/month (12-month agreement)
$109/month (12-week agreement)
Classes are an hour long. They begin with a 10/15-minute warm up session, which includes exercises designed to improve our students athleticism and conditioning. Students then drill techniques on one another to improve reflex and coordination. In the end, more experienced students train with the supervision of a Black Belt Instructor.
This training method is the biggest confidence booster you’ll experience. You learn to apply the techniques on a resisting opponent who’s trying to counteract with their own moves. You’ll learn to think and react fast, improve your reflexes and cardio capacity. This type of training only occurs after completion of the 12-week program and although highly recommended, it is optional.
Women’s class: Saturday at 9:00AM
Co-ed classes: Tuesday/Thursday at 7:15PM
Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 11:00AM

Women's Rape Prevention Seminar Photos
What a great time we had working with some of the women from around the community. From 14 to 50 year olds, everyone left the class feeling more educated about sexual assaults and how they can take place. We talked about prevention, escapes and strategies from getting away from an attacker standing and on the ground. Thanks all for coming out, information is POWER! ;)
