Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a strategic method of self-defense. It utilizes leverage, locks and holds that can neutralize a bigger, stronger opponent. Effective self-defense skills are taught while promoting an active and healthy lifestyle for children of all experience levels.


Students will learn when it is appropriate to use BJJ techniques, practice self-control and respect, and work as a cooperative team member.  These skills will not only improve their quality of life, but can enhance performance and confidence in other sports and activities.



Every Monday, beginning November 4. Class does not meet when Terrell ISD school days are not in session. Click here to see the Terrell ISD Academic Calendar
