We’re 1.5 blocks away from the Spring Hill metro station on the silver line. From hobbyists to elite-level competitors, beginner through advanced, we know each student has his/her own unique background and goals. Our instructors are both internationally successful competitors and experienced coaches committed to each student’s development. Our students form a diverse community of supportive training partners who care about each others’ safety and progress. There’s something for everyone here—come try us out!
Our fundamentals classes are geared towards people who have no prior grappling or martial arts experience, enabling students to learn solid basics in a safe, non-intimidating environment. We also offer all-levels classes to instruct and provide sparring opportunities to students of all levels. In both our fundamentals and all-levels classes, you’ll find beginner, intermediate and advanced students taking the classes together and helping each other. Learn more about our Adult classes.
Offered for children ages 6 – 12, our kids classes are a fun way for children to learn jiu jitsu and self-defense techniques while building strength, confidence and discipline. This program follows an organized curriculum intended to help students develop a solid technical foundation. We cultivate a supportive environment for kids of different levels of ability. Students learn that jiu jitsu teammates take care of one another even while practicing difficult positions. Learn more about our Kids’ Program.
