Jiu Jitsu


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a modern self Pedro Sauer Affiliate defense system developed from traditional Jiu-Jitsu by the Gracie family of Brazil. This program teaches one of the most effective martial arts in the world. The emphasis is on grappling, and ground fighting with armbars, chokes, throws, leg locks, takedowns, and stand-up self-defense moves. At World Class Martial Arts we don’t focus on forms, but rather, we focus on practical applications of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that translate into effective self-defense on the street or for competition. The techniques we learn are the same as those being taught to the military, police, and security personnel. Why? Because they are the most effective for controlling and subduing an opponent.
