Jiu-Jitsu Grand Prix Tournament Team Results


A quick shout out to our Kids BJJ competition team who performed this past Saturday, May 18 at the Jiu-Jitsu Grand Prix tournament in Pleasanton, Ca. Congrats to everyone for stepping up in special to those who won First place.

Always good to keep in mind that to compete and do well in martial arts, one must dedicate their time year long. Unlike other sports, Jiu-Jitsu isn't a seasonal thing, there's either full time commitment and real results or half commitment and no results.

Good job Team: Keira and Tina E, Alexis and Isabella Y, Joaquin G, Maksim M, Alexis G, Seth S, Bryant F, Jacob M, Yassir W, Carson S, Jacob T, Gianna R, Dominique G, Evan K and Ray M.

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)

Class Format
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.

Class Schedule
Women’s class: Saturday at 9:00AM
Co-ed classes: Tuesday/Thursday at 7:15PM
Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 11:00AM

If you have no previous martial arts experience and want to learn how to defend yourself in a fun, safe, and cooperative learning environment, with a professional and experienced staff, our Academy is for you. For more information on our award winning Adult Jiu-Jitsu Program, click here.
