Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It emphasizes the use of leverage and body framing against one's opponent so that weaker and smaller practitioners can prevail against larger and more athletic challengers. We have built a class environment that offers anyone from the beginner to the seasoned competitor a training atmosphere that will allow everyone to survive a trip to the ground. BJJs' focus on leverage, balance and technique, make it an excellent choice for improving your fitness and flexibility along with your fighting skills. Each class consists of drills, skill development, and rolling (free sparring), because there is no training substitute for a live resisting opponent. All skill levels work together which provides everyone with ample training partners to work with in a low-pressure, work-at-your-own level atmosphere.
Gi or no gi grappling? Don't choose – do both!
No-gi grappling is fast and exciting. Gi grappling is technical and methodical. At Buckley Jiu-Jitsu, we don't make you choose - we give you all the toys. It’s been our experience that both styles of training offer different answers to similar problems. When you get in a jam, it’s just good sense to have options! As an added bonus, if you have a preference for one or the other, you'll be happy either way!
