MONROE JIU JITSU

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

​Brazilian jiu jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese jiu jutsu to create the art.

Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. At Monroe Jiu Jitsu the class will consist of a warm up, stretching, take downs, self defense and Jiu Jitsu techniques. Advanced students will have the opportunity to spar after each class.
