Unlike many schools, Oregon Pound Martial Arts in Corvallis, Oregon, offers instruction both in ground fighting and stand-up fighting. And with three different styles and classes six days a week, you can learn both. Since 2001, we have been an affiliate of the Pedro Sauer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association, and since 2008, also associated with Rylan Lizares and the Gracie Technics organization.
Mike Downing is the Oregon Pound Program Director and head instructor for the BJJ class. Mike began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 1998 and is a Brown Belt. He also has a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do having trained in that art for thirteen years.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes are held in the Mat room of Cheldelin Middle School in Corvallis.
