About us

The Institute of Jiu-Jitsu teaches the essence of the Gracie family's martial art, as developed by Helio Gracie.

IJJ instruction focuses on efficiency (techniques that rely on leverage rather than strength), effectiveness (techniques that can be applied in Gi, NoGi, self-defense and sport jiu-jitsu) and attention to details thereby teaching students the newest innovations in modern jiu-jitsu without neglecting the fundamentals of self-defense.

Whether you’re an active competitor, or just someone who’s looking to get fit, and in the need of learning self-defense, or maybe a UFC buff that wants to discover the intricacies jiu-jitsu has to offer, IJJ is the place for you. Classes are taught in a safe, friendly and controlled environment that fosters fun, camaraderie, and respect.

The Institute of Jiu-Jitsu offers eight regular classes a week and two invite-only competition classes. We also believe in a “gym without walls” concept and people from all schools and all affiliations are welcome to train with us.
