It doesn’t matter what skill level you are at we’re sure you will fit right in with us. There are many different reasons for trying out brazilian jiu jitsu, weight loss, increased stamina, self defense, competition, or you might just love grappling, but whatever your reasons we are sure to be able to help you reach your goals!
Most of us compete regularly at a local and national level but that is not necessary to join. If you decide you would like to compete there are many tournaments available and we can help you get ready. If your interests are more into MMA we can help you get your ground game up and going. Most fighters today are specializing in a base martial art and if your looking to get into full contact or cage fighting you will benefit from ground work. Flagstaff Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy is affiliated with Wellington “Megaton” Dias in Phoenix. He is a Black Belt of the Gracie Humaita school under Royler Gracie and the president of the Arizona Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation.
