Gracie Jiu-jitsu Combat Fundamentals (CF): Required for all students of all levels, these classes are the foundation of jiu jitsu. Students will learn fundamental techniques to help you protect yourself successfully in the most common self-defense scenarios, when there are no rules. Many of these techniques are the exact same ones taught to our military and law enforcement officers to help them survive a variety of hostile situations. The core concepts of technique, timing, and leverage are at the forefront of these classes. This means that our focus is on efficiency over size, strength, or athleticism.   Try a free class anytime, ask at the front desk!

Jiu-jitsu 101: As part of the CF curriculum, all White belts and above are eligible to participate in Jiu-jitsu 101 classes. In this class, students  learn the basics of jiu-jitsu vs jiu-jitsu “rolling” via drills. This allows students to start combining the techniques they have already learned with minimal resistance in order to build proper muscle memory.  Try a free class anytime, ask at the front desk!

No Gi: Thursday nights at 6:30-7:30 in the TO BJJ room.  Recommended for 1 stripe White belts and above.
