Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
A means to improve your entire life
Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (sometimes called jiu jitsu, bjj, or Gracie Jiu Jitsu) program for adults is designed for all skill and fitness levels and ages 13-99. It is the most complete ground fighting system on the planet, and it proves the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and technique rather than strength and athleticism.
You’ll learn how to get an opponent to the ground, control them, and finish them with a submission. Master the most popular martial art in the world while getting in the best shape of your life.
- Learn the most practical form of self defense
- Dramatically improve fitness
- Improve mental health & overall happiness
- Build confidence for every aspect of life
While BJJ is incredibly useful for self defense and overall fitness, some people choose to use it as a means to challenge themselves competitively – either in sport grappling tournaments or mixed martial arts (MMA). Unit 2 has a proven track record as one of the best BJJ teams on the East coast having produced champions at all levels of competition from Georgia’s NAGA (North American Grappling Association) Tournament to the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Championships to professional MMA fighters in the UFC, WEC, and Strikeforce.
So whether you are looking for an interesting and social way to get fit, would like to test your skills at a tournament one day, or are a seasoned competitor, our highly experienced coaches and team have the knowledge and resources to help you reach those goals. You will be surrounded by a community of supporters and friends who help each other through this journey. Come experience it for yourself!
Our BJJ curriculum has classes for all levels and includes both gi (with a uniform) and no-gi, aka “submission grappling”.
If you are new to BJJ, start here! Our BJJ 101 classes allow you to learn the fundamentals of the sport and how to effectively apply the techniques in a controlled, safe, and fun environment. All core positions are covered: takedowns, sweeps, passes, escapes, and submissions.
BJJ - All Levels
These classes cover all aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and are designed for anyone (all levels) after completing the BJJ 101 program. It includes warm ups, learning/ drilling new positions, and live sparring where you put what you know into action against resisting teammates.
BJJ - Advanced
These classes feature more complex positional study and more intense sparring. It flexes to individual interests and development so whether you are a professional MMA fighter, wanting to compete in grappling, or just a hobbyist, your jiu jitsu will advance and your limits will be pushed.
These classes are conducted without the gi and are designed to help students apply the principles of jiu jitsu in a no-gi, or submission grappling, setting. These classes are great for students wanting to expand their knowledge of leg locks or improve their mixed martial arts skillset.
