Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling-based martial art which focuses primarily on controlling a resisting opponent in ways to force him to submit. Incorporating the Gi (Kimono), BJJ involves taking down the opponent, and using techniques centered around the skill of potentially submitting them through the application of joint locks and chokes. It is also one of the fastest-growing martial arts, because of its great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, the BJJ practitioner will generally focus his intentions on getting into a position which will force his opponent or attacker to submit via submission, rendering a finish to a fight or altercation, rather quickly.
MOST EFFECTIVE SELF-DEFENSE IN EXISTENCE
BJJ has proven to be the most practical and effective self-defense system in the world as it relies on leverage and technique, rather than size and strength. This allows a person to defend themselves against much larger and stronger attackers. As a result, BJJ is a great sport for everyone – most importantly for women and children. One in four women will be a victim of sexual assault in their lifetime. What makes jiu-jitsu perfect for women is that it effectively addressed what to do when a fight goes to the ground and if there's one thing we know for sure is that the attacker will do everything in his power to get you there. At the end of the day, we know that victory is getting home safely. Our program teaches you how to neutralize the assault, escape if possible and if an escape isn't possible, how to incapacitate the attacker with a choke or a joint lock. Self-defense begins with the belief that you are worth defending and the techniques you'll learn at Experience can one day save your life.

Our NoGi Submission Grappling program offers both fundamental and advanced techniques and is designed to help students apply the foundational principles of Jiu-Jitsu in a NoGi context. Students will have the opportunity to learn the same modern Jiu-Jitsu techniques taught in the Gi programs but learn how to adapt them to NoGi situations. Our program entails wrestling; positional controls; defensive techniques; submissions; and leg locks. Its mandatory that our students also participate in our Gi classes to establish a solid grasp of jiu-jitsu fundamentals.
Experience uniforms are required for both the Gi and NoGi classes. Although most practice jiu-jitsu for the incredible self-defense and fitness benefits, there are opportunities for those interested in competing. The Experience Team continues to be successful in competition.
