Often referred to as “The gentle art” Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts systems in the world. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, not brute strength, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying submission holds and choke holds to defeat the attacker. Developed by the famous “Gracie Family” this self-defense style has been proven effective over countless “style vs style” matches and most notably the UFC.

Here at ETCA we not only have a fantastic adult BJJ program, but our Junior Warriors class is truly “ELITE” as can be seen by the multiple BJJ tournament championships they have earned.
