Our students have various goals when joining the adult Brazilian jiu-jitsu class. Some practice Martial Arts to get in shape and to relieve stress and feel good. Others want to improve their discipline and confidence because Jiu-Jitsu is very effective as a street self-defense martial art. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu gives anyone the ability to overcome any attacker regardless of size and strength.

What is Jiu-Jitsu? 

Jiu means “gentle, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding.” Jitsu means "art" or "technique" and represents manipulating the opponent's force against himself rather than confronting it with one's own force. It’s based on clinching and grappling techniques that use leverage, timing and technique.  Gracie or Brazilian jiu-jitsu was created and developed by Carlos and Helio Gracie in the early 20’s in Brazil. It is mainly known for being modified to help smaller weaker opponents to be able to defend themselves against a bigger, stronger attacker.




Jiu-Jitsu as a self defense

The main strategy in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a self-defense  is to manage the distance, close the distance, take the opponent to the ground and submit the opponent using leverage based grappling techniques such as arm locks, chokes, leg locks, neck cranks or small joint manipulation. In our dojo in Ewing, NJ we teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Jiu-Jitsu for competition

There is difference between training for a competition and the Self-Defense aspect of Jiu-Jitsu. Competition is not mandatory, nor expected of students. Because jiu-Jitsu is fun,  some students enjoy competing as means of testing themselves and their abilities. Competitive or sports jiu-jitsu uses a wider variety of techniques that are designed for achieving better results in a competition settings.

Through classes filled with exciting, hi-energy, age-appropriate drills carefully designed to develop important life skills you'll build strength, stamina and endurance fast!
These skills and techniques can be transferred to all the things you love to do - both outside of the dojo and during training!
Believe it or not - many Martial Artists are great dancers (they know how to move their body!), dominate at work with newfound confidence, and even get injured less than friends their age who are not as active!

Our dojo in Ewing, NJ is unique and teaches high quality Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
