We are proud to offer a variety of classes to meet the needs of our students.  We train adults as well as children in the "gentle art".  While we are a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy at our core, we offer a wide range of disciplines for our fighters that choose to participate in Mixed Martial Arts.  We also offer these classes to all students that may want to add striking to their game.  In addition to those we also have classes for Women only who are not comfortable sharing the mats with men.

Professor Michael Mann wins Chicago Open!

I've really enjoyed my time here at this gym. The atmosphere is awesome. It's a great place to Learn about jujitsu, MMA and self defense. All the instructors are awesome people and are all very knowledgeable and experienced. I've met a lot of great friends here and I've gotten to experience things I never would have otherwise. I would most definitely recommend this gym to anyone.
