Total Jiu-Jitsu is the only academy in Indiana affiliated with the Royler Gracie – David Adiv Jiu Jitsu Association (RGDA). Total Jiu-Jitsu stays true to the jiu-jitsu taught at the Gracie Humaita Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Total Jiu-Jitsu offers a mix of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with and without the gi (submission grappling). Our curriculum places an emphasis on ground fighting, but we also cover takedowns and clinch work. Training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a great way to have fun and get in shape. Your strength, stamina and flexibility will greatly improve while you are learning a very valuable skill–how to protect yourself.
In the beginning stages of your training you will learn the fundamental techniques that will eventually be your foundation for other applications such as self-defense and UFC-style fighting.
For beginners we emphasize the required fundamentals of the martial art. This allows you to become proficient with basic techniques and principles that will be the foundation of the system.
For advanced students we offer training with the most successful competition team in the area. Our students have won numerous local, regional, and national bjj competitions. Total Jiu-Jitsu offers a balanced curriculum of sport, no-gi, self defense and no-rules (vale tudo) fighting. We emphasize ground-fighting, but we also cover takedowns.
