The style that beats all other styles?

For self-defense, most people practice punches and kicks...but 9 out of 10 fights end up on the ground. That makes all of those striking techniques completely USELESS.

When a fight goes to the ground though...Co-Ed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu shines.

That makes it one of the most practical, real-world forms of self-defense on the planet.

Gets your entire body in AMAZING shape.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one heck of an awesome workout. Every class will have you working hard and sweating.

It burns fat, strengthens and tones muscle, and boosts your energy and overall physique.

Some people join our classes JUST for the workout! After all, it's so fun that you forget you're building strength and burning calories.

Discover self-defense... compete in tournaments... or just get an action-packed workout.

Interested in competing in tournaments? Or maybe you just want to stay safe? Or maybe you just want a workout that's as fun as it is effective?

Whether your goals are one, two, or all three of the above... we've got you covered.

People come to us for each of those reasons - and get them to where they want to go. We'd love to help you crush your goals, too.

Beginners AND pros are more than welcome.

99% of our students were BRAND NEW to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when they first walked through our doors. So if you're a beginner - you're in a community that understands what that's like.

You have nothing to be embarrassed about. We'd love nothing more than to get you up to speed and show you the ropes.

On the other hand - seasoned vets get just as much out of our training. Our amazing instructors will help you perfect your techniques, learn new ones, increase your strength, and reach that next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

People who do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are never the ones to start fights. They're the ones who do everything in their power to avoid fights. But if a fight has to happen, they are ready to defend themselves. So no, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not violent. As far as your body goes, the exercise involved may be tough for you at first. But you're welcome to go at your own pace. This isn't the army or anything! We're here to support you and help you succeed. It may be hard, but not enough to cause injuries. It is just hard enough to form a great calorie-burning workout.
Not at all! In fact, many of our students are those who didn't enjoy other sports. Many of them were not athletic before joining this class. Now they're in better shape than anyone else they know. They're lean fit and feeling great! So if you're not athletic already, don't worry, we'll help you get there.
Any physical activity can lead to injury, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is no exception - but because we place so much care in keeping you safe .... We hardly EVER see injuries here. We guide you through the correct way to do each technique. This way, you don't harm your body. We also show you how to stretch properly, further reducing your chances of injury. You go at your own pace, so you don't force your body to do anything it's not ready for. Students who pick up on BJJ quickly are just as valued as those who need to slow down, and learn at a different pace.

Our family loves SKBJJ! My oldest has been attending classes the last 2 and a half years and my youngest just started. When my oldest first started I wanted him to simply increase his general confidence and coordination and he has grown in so many more areas than anticipated. He now has the skills to give appropriate boundaries and talk through hard situations and his fine and gross motor skills have grown leaps and bounds!! He also LOVES his friends here and his instructors!! The instructors are great role models! My youngest is all smiles every class and when instructors can keep a class of 4 and 5 year olds engaged and on task they are definitely doing something right! We are so thankful to be a part of the SKBJJ family and look forward to many more years here.

We love SKBJJ! My Son has been going here at least twice a week for almost 2 years. Such a positive and upbeat program going well beyond just Jiu-Jitsu. My Son has became more focused in school and other areas of his life since being introduced to this program. They have several class times and options to fit family needs. Very genuine and kind people!

My 9 year old son and I have been going to SKBJJ for a few years now and I recommend it to everyone who might ever want to try Jiu Jitsu. They are amazing with the Kids/Teens and have great classes for Adults too!

I had interest in learning a martial art for quite some time, and kept hearing about the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I finally signed up at the beginning of the year, and now I wish I had sooner. It has been awesome! Great challenge, learning and practicing every week. I signed my son (7) up a little over a month ago, and he is loving it too. On Jiu Jitsu days, he is always excited to go to school, and be able to go to class after school. Absolutely great experience, and great people to learn with.

Great people, great vibes and you can't beat the world class instruction that SKBJJ has to offer! I've been a student at the academy for a little over a year and I still look forward to training and seeing all of my mat buddies. If you want to get a workout and get in shape, become a fierce competitor, or just be a part of the community, I highly recommend that you come down and try it out.
