Victory Jiu Jitsu Team

Jiu Jitsu, which means the “gentle art”, is a grappling based self defense system that emphasizes the proper application of technique, leverage and patience to win over strength and agression. It teaches the student to use their attacker’s energy against them, rather than opposing it head-on.  Essentially, Jiu Jitsu gives a smaller individual the ability to defend themself against a larger and stronger opponent in a stand up confrontation or on the ground. ‘Gracie’ Jiu Jitsu is the name given to the style of Jiu Jitsu that was developed by the Gracie family in Brazil.

Here at the academy, our approach is methodical. We teach using the curriculum set by the Gracie family – teaching students self defense, takedowns and throws, sweeps, chokes, joint locks and various other submission holds.

No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/ Submission Grappling:

An extension of our Gracie Jiu Jitsu program, our No-Gi Jiu Jitsu class combines our Gracie Jiu Jitsu curriculum with Greco Roman and Freestyle Wrestling. This class is for members that want to expand on their grappling game and compete in No-Gi Submission Grappling tournaments and Mixed Martial Arts.

For developing an in depth knowledge of self defense, training for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) competition or developing a ground game for mixed martial arts, students looking to learn this revolutionary martial art can do so in a very well structured setting here at the academy.
