Our curriculum was built to teach all body types, women, men’s all ages (13 years old and up). Learning any new sport is not an easy task but we are here to make sure you will learn and have a good time.


The Intermediate class was designed to improve your overall jiu-jitsu knowledge, starting from white belt 3 stripes to Black Belts.

This class will prepare the white belt to get the blue belt, teach how to roll, learn the rules, build your game and start to teach more complex techniques. 


Our advanced program is designed for those who want to take their knowledge to the next level, with elaborated techniques, more time dedicated to drills, and intense sparring. It is great for students that want to pursue higher belts and participate in tournaments.

Advanced classes are for students from four stripes white belt and up (color belts).
