There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or learn.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu defined

BJJ Classes


Our Foundations program is where all new comers start their SBG journey, whether they're beginners or have years of training under their belt. In this class, we work on fundamentals - the postures and positions that allow our students to train safely. To us, fundamental doesn't mean most basic; fundamentals are essentials. Our Foundations program is the artful introduction to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle and where the beginnings of great relationships are born.

BJJ Fundamentals

Frame works is where we focus on the why of Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals. Understanding the why facilitates the how. We take fundamental Jiu-Jitsu concepts to a higher level by exploring the importance of principles like “position before the submission." This class is also where live sparring is introduced and the importance of “aliveness” is driven home.
