What's so great about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Two Very Common Beginner Concerns...
“I need to be in shape before I join.”
We have beginner only classes, so you don’t need to keep up with people that have been training for years.
And in our beginner classes we get you in shape. Everyone goes at their own pace. We will push you beyond your current levels, but not overdoing it.
“I’m afraid of being embarrassed or hurt.”
Our beginner classes require no previous experience. Each class we will demonstrate a technique, then you will have several minutes to practice the technique with no resistance. After that we will teach a second, and sometimes a third technique.
From there we will gradually add resistance to those techniques. You let your partner know how much resistance you want, and you can change it as you go. For example, you may ask for 30% resistance. When you feel comfortable, you may ask for more resistance.
And you will not start sparring until you are ready!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training can help you to get into the best shape of your life both physically and mentally. It is like strength training and cardiovascular training all rolled into one amazingly fun workout. You may be amazed at how fit you can become from “rolling” in BJJ.
Whats is also great is that as you get in shape, you’re learning techniques and ways to outsmart your opponent. You’re constantly trying to think two or three moves ahead much like in a chess game. So, as you become physically fit, you become mentally fit as well!
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will also teach you continually set and accomplish new goals. Whether it’s getting that first stripe on your white belt, or getting your black belt, winning the world championship or just learning to do a proper arm bar, you’re always striving to reach new levels and accomplish new feats. This is what makes Jiu Jitsu so interesting, so exhilarating, so rewarding and so fun!
If you haven’t ever seen Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu done before, here is a short video with some highlights of our warm ups, techniques being taught, and partner training.

Some information about your introductory private lesson
We start by taking you or your child on the mat and going over some of the basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This includes a very powerful and efficient technique called the Upa Escape. We will also be going over the Americana Shoulder Lock and a very effective way to escape a powerful headlock called the Frame Escape: all together three powerful ways to prevent an attacker from hurting you or your loved ones.
We will show you some of the basic positions, movements, escapes, and submission holds of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
After spending some time on the mats, we will then review all of the available programs options that we offer here at DMBJJ in detail.
This intro lesson will be a very light workout, so wear comfortable clothes that you can work out in.
This is no cost or obligation to you at all!
We know that everyone is different, and it is a slight possibility that training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu may not be your "thing". But you will never know until you try! And think of it this way, If you decide not to join, you will have learned several powerful self defense techniques, met some great people, and had fun!
