Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling martial arts style which can be traced back from Japanese martial arts that were introduced to the Gracie family in Brazil. This martial arts discipline focuses on grappling to control and submit your opponent without having to strike. At The Foundry, members train in our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ program for a number of reasons such as to learn realistic self-defense techniques, challenge themselves with developing a new skill, learning to compete and test their strengths and weaknesses against others, or because is offers a full body workout.

Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Our youth BJJ class is available for children 9 and older. In the class, the children are taught at the same standard that we expect for our adults and each child works over techniques as they progress in their ranks. Any student is capable of competing in jiu-jitsu and submission grappling tournaments but competition is not a requirement to be enrolled in the course.
Teen / Adult BJJ
While Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu does not include striking in it’s curriculum, it is a very competent form of self-defense that is useful for all sizes of grappler. Our teen and adult classes include men and women from a multitude of ages and sizes and we have grapplers of every belt level to grapple and train with.
