We offer morning, afternoon, and evening classes in bjj (gi and no gi)
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or "BJJ", is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling with an emphasis on ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit.
Jiu-Jitsu, meaning “the gentle art”, earned its name because it uses submission positions to control an opponent instead of striking methods. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring in class (commonly referred to as "rolling"), live drills and conditioning play a major role in training. The Siege Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is associated with the much respected "One Jiu-Jitsu" affiliation under Master Giva Santana.
No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (also referred to as "Submission Wrestling") is simply Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the gi (traditional Jiu-Jitsu uniform). Generally, grappling shorts or board style shorts are worn with a t-shirt or rash guard shirt. As with Gi Jiu-Jitsu, the goal of No-Gi BJJ is to gain a dominant position and by using a submission technique to cause the opponent to submit or "tap out". There are No-Gi tournaments all over the world and many people enjoy the realism of competing in normal clothing.
