Coming into a martial arts academy can be intimidating for the beginning student.

Our goal with the fundamentals class is to allow our students to learn jiu-jitsu by focusing on the controlled drilling of techniques without active sparring.

The class also serves as a foundation for all students of BJJ, teaching the principles of the art and committing the core movements to muscle memory.

Our Intermediate class is focused on the combination of fundamental, intermediate and advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We have designed this class to begin with drilling, followed by Jiu-Jitsu techniques, expanding into the live position training. With this class, the instructor reinforces how we are here to have fun with our training, while leaving our ego outside the mat. Before we step on the mat, we leave our shoes outside the mat because our shoes are dirty. It is the same with our ego. If we bring our ego onto the mat, we are bringing the negative energy with us. If you bring the negative energy onto the mat, it is very difficult to learn what the instructor is teaching, and it can get you or your training partner hurt.

For the student who is interested in competing in the sport, or if the student is just interested in testing his knowledge in a more practical setting, our advanced class offers World-class instruction. Our philosophy at Southside Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to make Champions on and off the mats. It’s easy to receive a Gold medal in Jiu-Jitsu, so our idea is to make champions off the mats as well. It’s known that Jiu-Jitsu can be translated to the daily life. In Jiu-Jitsu, we learn how to solve our problems during the sparring sessions, solving one problem at a time, not letting our problems aggravate us; the same thing happens in lives – it’s applicable.

I have wanted to try bjj for a while now but have been put off due to it being a predominantly male sport. I'm so glad I finally got into it here at Southside, I don't feel out of place at all and I absolutely love it!
