BJJ IS MANY THINGS.

Simply put, Jiu Jitsu is a self-defense system that uses leverage to overcome stronger opponents. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu comes from Japanese Judo. Many Japanese emigrants moved to Brazil in the beginning of the 19th century, including some famous Judo practitioners. One of those practitioners, who specialized in the ground fighting aspect of Judo, befriended a Brazilian family called the Gracies. The Gracie family took Japanese Judo and expanded upon its principles of grappling and leverage. The Gracies’ eventually brought Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to the world when they started the UFC.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not bounded by tradition, and it is always evolving! You can invent your own Jitsu – as long as it works to defeat an opponent, it’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s harder than it sounds, but Jiu Jitsu today does have many differences from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 20 years ago.

What Separates Robot's Jiu Jitsu Program?

As a grappling art form, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu challenges you not only physically, but also intellectually through carefully structured movement patterns. Those movement patterns are universal and can translate into all forms of physical activity in everyday life. Our practice has grown from the traditional format used in many schools into a complete system of freedom and awareness through an understanding of anatomy and the mechanics of movement.

The practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu allows you to experience the tangible resistance and dynamics of the sport through sparring. Not only is it safe to engage in, but sparring allows you to practice and execute your movements with the same intention and resistance that you expect to encounter in competition or in a self-defense situation, which is what makes it so effective!

Whether you’re interested in competing at a high level or just want to learn a new skill, Robot is made up of a warm and welcoming community of students who have the same interests and goals as you do. We understand that you are entrusting us with helping you achieve your goals, and it inspires and motivates us to pass on our passion of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Martial Arts to our students.
