BJJ 201 is an advanced fundamentals class open to Phase Two White Belts and above.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit. It prides itself in being known as the “gentle art”, allowing a smaller, weaker person to use leverage and submissions (chokes, locks) to defend himself against a bigger opponent. With origins in Judo (Newaza) and Japanese Jujutsu, it has since been adapted and modified by Carlos Gracie and his family to become the martial art it is today (Evolve MMA).

Jiu-Jitsu is like a game of chess. If you make a wrong move you could be checkmated 10, 12, or 15 moves away.
