Jiu-Jitsu is widely considered the most effective form of self-defense in the world, and has become hugely popular especially with the explosion of UFC. The primary goal of Jiu Jitsu is to control a resisting opponent in ways that force him into submission by grappling.

Much of the technique of BJJ is centered around taking down an opponent on the ground and wrestling to control and render him harmless.

With proper technique, a BJJ practitioner can overcome opponents of a much bigger size. No kicks, no punches … let’s roll!

Frequently Asked Questions

The academy has Gi’s for sale directly to students (please ask your instructor). Alternatively, many quality Gi’s can be purchased online; ask your instructor for brand and size recommendations. A few examples of reputable companies that provide quality uniforms are: Ouano, Atama, Mizuno, Koral, and Adidas, among others. Additionally, besides Gi’s, the Academy sells Tee and sweat shirts, shorts, and rashguards, etc.

Sweatpants (preferably) or shorts, t-shirt, and water bottle is all you need to begin training. If you decide to continue with classes, you’ll be required to buy a Jiu-Jitsu uniform (“Gi”). For more information on purchasing a Gi, see Where can I purchase training apparel?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu shares a common lineage with modern Kodokan Judo. They both directly trace their roots back to Jigoro Kano (the founder of Judo). Both arts incorporate many of the same throws, joint locks, and chokes. The primary difference between the two arts has to do with the training and competition focus. In Judo, the goal and focus is on throwing your opponent cleanly and decisively (“nage waza”). Most of the training is focused on this form of grappling while standing. 

In BJJ, most of the training is focused on grappling once one or both players have gone down to the ground. The competition scoring and rules for each sport encourage these differences in training. Generally speaking, modern Judo has developed a more sophisticated throwing system (with the Gi) while BJJ has developed a more sophisticated ground grappling system including joint locks and chokes. Many students choose to cross-train in both arts. In addition to his vast BJJ experience, Marcelo Alonso also holds a black belt in Judo.
