Mission Statement | Adults

SDBJJ Academy & Mixed Martial Arts strive to create a safe, nurturing and positive atmosphere where adult students, no matter what their age, gender, or physical capabilities may be, will increase not only their ability to defend themselves, but also their mental focus, levels of self-confidence & self-discipline, and overall fitness (body, mind and spirit). Through practical application and much hard work, we will help you:

  • Reduce stress
  • Lose weight
  • Become stronger and more toned
  • Become more flexible
  • Have far more endurance

Positive Attitude:

Our programs are designed to be positive and inspirational. we’ll keep you motivated and thinking about progress and goals.

Self Confidence:

You’ll be encouraged to take chances, to push yourself further than you have ever thought possible. The success you experience through our program teaches you that you can be successful at anything if you truly believe you can. Improved confidence leads to better performance at work, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports and in extracurricular activities in general. Your improved self-confidence will help you deal with all of life’s challenges with a more positive outlook.

Self Defense:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/ Judo teach two forms of self-defense. On the physical side, you will improve your strength, flexibility and overall health.
You will learn to Throw and submit opponents with tremendous power and effectiveness. Hopefully you’ll never need to fight, but should the occasion arise, shouldn’t everyone know how to protect themselves? The second form of self-defense Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Judo teaches is internal. Our students learn to spot danger and avoid dangerous people, places and activities. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Judo helps you avoid the need for a physical confrontation.

Mission Statement | Kids

For Your Child, We Will:

Teach your child the self-discipline & perseverance necessary to excel in all of their academic and athletic endeavors. Improve your child’s motor skills by constantly increasing their eye, hand and foot coordination. Help your child understand the importance of respect — the more we show, the more we receive. Show your child how to focus and concentrate — the necessary skills to achieve better grades in school. Teach your child the self-defense skills to defend him/herself if absolutely necessary. Give your child the social skills to interact with others through a training program that encourages them to be team players.

Why Parents Love Our Classes:

Family values like respect, humility, self-control and honesty are an integral part of our Martial Arts Program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the very few places outside of the home where these principles are taught. They are the fundamental difference between Martial Arts and any other activity in which your child may participate. We teach lessons that last a lifetime – no other activity comes close!

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned veteran this gym is a warm and welcoming place where you are family.
