Adult BJJ Classes with Todd Meighen and Gregg Hammerton.


Our Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is designed so the new student can jump right into a class without feeling intimidated or out of place. New students get one on one attention to ensure the retention of knowledge and shown the practical application of the techniques. The classes follow a simple flow: a warm-up which includes stretching, cardio, and conditioning, followed by the drill and technique of the day, and ending with what we call "rolling" or sparring. Don't worry if you are not comfortable rolling the first day, new students aren't allowed to roll until they learn the basics. This ensures that the new student has no fear of injuries. 


Kids Classes with Todd Meighen and Gregg Hammerton.


Jiu-Jitsu, which translates to "gentle art", emphasizes the use of technique and leverage. Your child won’t have to rely on size, strength, or speed to defend themselves. We teach them to subdue their opponent in a safe and humane way, without having to rely on kicks and punches. Your child will develop physical awareness of balance, reflexes, flexibility and coordination, as well as build on the mental aspects of their personality such as self-esteem, discipline, confidence, compassion and good work ethic. The classes are taught in a positive, fun and friendly manner, so your child will enjoy learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Female Strong Classes Coming Soon!


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most valuable martial arts for women today. The key principles of leverage and technique provide women with the ability to not only defend themselves against an attacker, but also instill a sense of empowerment, confidence, and strength. Women will be able to learn in a safe and comfortable environment among other women without the intimidation that may come from training with male students. The women’s program focuses on the development of basic Jiu-Jitsu technique and is great for women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. With regular training, women will have the tools for self-defense, competition, fitness and self-improvement.
