Our 1200 square foot main training area is features a one-piece mat (that means no dust bunnies or nasty critters hiding in the cracks!)

Get comfy in our grandstand area and get a front row seat to all the action.

Our secondary room houses our health & wellness offerings. These include chi-gong & tai chi classes, acupuncture, and massage by appointment (you can even book a massage while your kids are in class!)

Our well-lit parking lot offers ample spaces so you never have to walk far before or after class.


Most martial arts schools limit you to only one free trial class. We offer new students a 10-day risk-free trial that includes a free uniform and unlimited access to all of our beginner group classes. We’re confident that the class structure, the camaraderie, and high quality instruction will convince you to let us guide you on your path to jiu-jitsu mastery. If it’s not exactly what you are looking for, we will never charge you a penny (the only requirement is that you return the free uniform that we provided to you).
