Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. Authentic BJJ incorporates self-discipline, a moral code, respect and instincts in all of its students.  It is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques, in addition to chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations on an opponent.

Gi Jiu Jitsu

Your uniform is a weapon. 

The GI (pronounced: gee) is the uniform used in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and all students learn to use it as a weapon. It was adapted from Japanese martial arts and is typically composed of a heavy cotton jacket and reinforced trousers. A cloth belt is worn over the gi, to keep the jacket closed, and to signify the skill/rank of the fighter. We recommend all authentic BBJ students incorporate wearing a GI into their formal training.

No-Gi

Street fighting without the GI. 

Like anything in life, it is good to be prepared and have diversified skills. While learning and practicing GI jiu-jitsu is essential to understand the roll that the GI plays. However, it is not always practical or available, as in street fighting, to wear a GI. Our students have the opportunity to learn Gi and No-Gi jiu-jitsu for developing skills in all areas.

Women's Jiu Jitsu

Size doesn’t matter. 

Historically, authentic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu was adapted from traditional Japanese Jiu-jitsu to accommodate smaller fighters.  Agility, speed and intelligence are key factors. However, we understand that it might initially be more comfortable for female students who are new to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu to practice with other women. This is exactly why we offer Women’s Jiu Jitsu classes. You will learn exactly what the pros are taught: Conditioning, technique, and lots of bag and mitt work are the mainstays of our classes.

It has been our experience that at some point, the women join the men and may the smarter opponent win!

BJJ for Kids!

Respect for self and others.

Every child can benefit from studying authentic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu . We start at age four and teach discipline, focus, and goal-setting skills while incorporating valuable self-defense.  The emphasis on personal achievement builds confidence while the belt and stripe requirements provide a clear path forward at each level of the training process– there are no “benchwarmers” in martial arts classes. Our students learn self- defense and life lessons while gaining self-confidence, self-discipline, self-esteem, self-respect and self- empowerment. They learn how to take on whatever life throws at them with confidence and grace. Our students learn how to respect their parents, teachers and elders.

It’s Never About One

Teamwork and Family are the keys to the culture at 617 Fight Sports. Even though each student trains at their own level and pace, we take care of each other. You will be welcomed from the very first day and all of your accomplishments are OUR accomplishments—from your very first belt to wining a competition—we will be there. More experienced students help and new students and we all have each other’s back. You never go into a fight alone.
