About Battle Born Jiu Jitsu
Battle Born Jiu Jitsu is an innovative gym unrestrained by conventional boundaries of typical grappling systems and dogmatic training approaches. Constantly evolving, we are always refining our approach and exposing students to leading edge concepts and training styles for a skill set which is widely considered the most critical for success in MMA (mixed martial arts), self-defense and street defense. Unlike Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing or Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on taking down and controlling an opponent while using throws, takedowns and submissions to dominate the attacker. Striking is an incorporated element as a last resort while dominating an opponent in a self-defense situation. As a sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is invigorating and suitable for practitioners of all ages and builds.
Our sport does not give itself to a specific body type and only reward the most athletic. As techniques are designed on scientific principles of leverage, even a smaller practitioner will quickly learn to control and dominate much larger opponents. This makes training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ideal for women and children as well as men of all ages. The physical fitness benefits are unrivaled as BJJ develops anaerobic fitness as well as aerobic fitness while giving practitioners explosive power when and where they need it the most; it is a dynamic and changing workout which will challenge the practitioner in ways that moving weights around never can.
Most importantly, at Battle Born Jiu Jitsu, we are focused on bringing out the very best in every person, so they can develop and improve physically as well as mentally to become the best version of themselves in every aspect of their lives.
