Welcome to Havelock Jiu Jitsu, the premier facility for Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and mixed martial arts (MMA), and the only Rigan Machado school in the Coastal Eastern North Carolina area. No matter what your age, size or gender, BJJ can help you meet your training goals. As a self-defense system, it teaches battle-tested techniques that not only help you to protect yourself but also to build the self-confidence that makes you less likely to be a victim in the first place.
As a fitness program, BJJ develops the kind of functional strength and endurance that will benefit even the
elite athlete. Havelock Jiu-Jitsu provides a fun and structured environment where you will train with other people striving to meet these same goals.
Havelock Jiu Jitsu head instructors George and Christopher Yulee are certified by legendary fighters Rigan Machado and his student Marcos Santos, making them the most sought-after instructors for both for novice students beginning their study of the art and advanced students looking to refine their technique. BJJ is the definitive fighting style, and with its effectiveness in the UFC, it is also the fastest growing sport in the world today.
Head Instructor for BJJ of Havelock, Coach George Yulee, began his training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Marcos Santos. After a few years of diligent training Coach Yulee was promoted to the rank of Blue Belt and was given permission to teach BJJ. Coach Yulee is also in charge of a Ten Men BJJ team that has been competing at the NAGA Tournaments.
