Here at The MAT Center, we follow the principles that were handed down through Grandmaster Helio Gracie through Master Caique Elias. Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu utilizes positioning, takedowns and throws, leverage, and submission holds to subdue the opponent.

You will learn all aspects of Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Sport, Self-Defense, and Vale Tudo! This is ideal when dealing with an attacker who is bigger, heavier, and stronger than you. 

Our adult classes are open to men and women. The classes are designed to gradually get you in shape and familiar with the techniques in a safe and friendly environment.
