Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the core art taught at the Marra Senki Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the art that we teach as developed by the Gracie family of Brazil. Even though BJJ contains standup techniques for winning a fight, it is famous for its devastating ground fighting techniques. BJJ was specifically developed to allow a smaller person to defeat a larger person by sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations becomes the foundation for this fun martial art. BJJ is normally performed in a gi (kimono), which serves as a training tool and gives the student a greater element of control.

Family Fitness, Self-Defense & Fun

Family Fitness, Self-Defense and Fun is at the core of our curriculum.  We offer a unique opportunity for families to train during the same times in the same art/sport, while being in separate age appropriate training areas.  This allows families to get more training in less amount of time while saving on traveling times, and expenses, not to mention the logistics of getting the entire family to different locations or at different times.

Is Jiu-Jitsu safe?

At Marra Senki BJJ Academy safety is paramount. Accidents may happen, however, lack of seriousness during training and the resultant careless application of technique or counters contribute greatly to injury. Careless practice is disrespectful to the spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and we do not allow it. Our team is mostly made of proffesionals from all walks of life.  Though our training style is designed to push the body it isn’t intened to cause unnessecery injury or harm.  Providing that the student trains with care, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be enjoyed as a lifelong lifestyle.

    Success as a personal trainer means having a dedicated clientele that want to push themselves and those around them to reach their highest potential. Clients come to me with a wide range of goals and aspirations. Whether it’s losing weight, building muscle, improving flexibility and mobility, hand eye coordination, speed and agility, or all of the above – I’m here to help you achieve results. Tired of all the lies, shortcuts, and gimmicks being sold to you? I have the truth here for you! Come see me and let’s smash goals! I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu brown belt and a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. My journey into a strong, healthy life started over 15 years ago when I began powerlifting and winning tournaments. After a few years, life got in the way and I became complacent with my diet and training. Before I knew it, I was 50 lbs overweight! In 2010, I found Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. That reignited my passion for being in good physical condition. I learned to eat cleanly and train regularly. The weight came off, my health and strength were transformed, and I was motivated to provide that same success for others.  I became a certified personal trainer in 2014 and began helping others find their best life, the way my coaches had helped me. Pay it forward!
