Is to Bring Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Downtown St. Pete and for people to understand the beauty of what we do.
What We Do
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is practiced in the traditional kimono (Gi). The gi is used as a weapon to perform chokes, control your opponent and create leverage for sweeps and throws. We practice for both self defense and for competition in accordance with the IBJJF rules.
No Gi Jiu-Jitsu
No Gi Jiu-Jitsu (Submission Grappling) is practiced without the traditional Kimono. No Gi is faster paced and implements aspects of wrestling as well as using leg locks not permitted in Gi competitions.
Our wresting class is focused on the use of Folk, Freestyle and Greco as it applies to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We use wrestling to execute takedowns and postional control to set up our submission game.
