Our Mission

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (a.k.a. Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu) is a grappling art that was made popular in North America by the legendary Gracie family. BJJ concentrates on dominating your opponent by using angles, leverage, and superior body positioning to control your opponent’s body movement. A person that has gained a superior position is much more able to safely apply a finishing hold or to start striking, allowing a smaller person to defeat a much larger one.

“Time on the mat will eventually surpass talent and ability.”
