BJJ is a Martial art using leverage so a small person can beat a larger aggressive opponent. Using joint locks, pins, and strangulation. Lose Weight, meet life long friends, and learn to defend yourself.
Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school is part of the Caio Terra Assiciation. Caio is a 7x no gi and 2x Gi World champion. We have an equal amount of Gi and no Gi classes. There are advantages to both and do not cater to either.
Mike Martin is the owner of Strong Heart Academy and teaches and rolls with all students. Some instructors stop rolling with all students but Mike believes this helps him see where students games are at. Everyone is respected here and many new students have said they belong to feel comfortable very quickly.
Our classes always start with warm ups to help avoid injury. The rest of the class is usually part technical instruction, situationals, drills and the other half is live rolling. BJJ takes longer than other martial arts to get belts. Be patient and don’t be the person who tries to get in shape before coming to the school. You get in shape by training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We have had many successful weight loss stories. Anticipation is the worst part, so contact us today.
The Advanced and Basic BJJ practitioners both train in the same class. We believe in this method because there is a lot of knowledge that can be transferred amongst the students. Students will learn a lot of their game from the blackbelts, but there are many willing students to help you advance your bjj journey.
