Adult Jiu-Jitsu

Whether you are interested in entering competitions, picking up a new hobby, or begin a fitness routine to get in better shape, our adult classes are for you! We will meet you where you are and help you achieve your personal goals through the incredible art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu concentrates on dominating your opponent by using angles, leverage, and superior body positioning to control an opponent’s body movement. It is a chess game on the ground, and the possibilities to thrive in this sport are endless. The benefits of training are personal and different for everyone, but it WILL change your life.

A Community

Classes include 60 minutes of quality instruction. We will typically cover 3-4 techniques per session. The techniques will be relevant to each other, building upon one another in a progression. Each technique will be broken down in great detail by the instructor, who will demonstrate the technique 4-5 times. You will then pair up with a partner and try the technique under the watchful eye of the instructor. Working closely with each other and the instructor builds a community within the gym where everyone helps everyone. We do more than train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu -- we build genuine friendships.


"Joining Ohio Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Self-Defense Academy is the best decision I have ever made. I have become part of a group of friends who are always supportive and helpful, I have gained a confidence I have never had before, and I feel healthier, both physically and mentally, than any other time of my life. I love it!" - Joe, 32
"I wasn't sure how I would do with Jiu Jitsu because I started much later (roughly around 45), but the instructors and everyone at Ohio Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Self Defense Academy have been absolutely awesome to work with. They are so welcoming and the way the teach is all aout technique and fundamentals. Not only am I able to train Jiu-Jitsu, I feel better now than I have in a long time!" - Chris, 53
