The literal translation of the words “Jiu Jitsu” is the “gentle way”. So you might wonder how that would apply to a school called Force Jiu Jitsu. Very simply, Force Jiu Jitsu strives to provide each student with a “Force” they can make their own. It is not about strength or “forcing” techniques. It is about developing the mental and physical attributes that make each student an effective Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) practitioner. Our goal is to provide Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction that is technically focused and applicable to each individual student.

What you will find at Force Jiu Jitsu:

  • A relaxed, informal, humor-filled atmosphere with people that are sincerely interested in improving themsleves through jiu jitsu.
  • No titles, bowing, or cadence
  • An environment that fosters collaborative training between students. Not a dog-eat-dog sparring environment.
  • Respect for each student by every student.
