Jiu-Jitsu Classes In Brentwood And Napa

Take On Exciting Jiu-Jitsu Classes For All Experience Levels Today!

A person’s primary reason for joining martial arts varies. Some join looking to get in shape or for the stress-relief benefits. Others wish to improve their confidence, discipline, and self-control. But most specifically choose Jiu-Jitsu due to its effectiveness in actual hand-to-hand combat and street self-defense. Diligent training will allow for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to give anyone the ability to overcome attackers, regardless of their size and strength. Anytime and anywhere.

Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect tool for teens to address bullying (see Kids Jiu-Jitsu), for women’s defense against domestic violence and/or sexual assaults (see Women's Jiu-Jitsu) and for law enforcement officers to address non-compliant subjects that attempt an assault upon the officer (see G.R.A.C.I.E.™).

Our Jiu-Jitsu classes in Brentwood and Napa help men and women ages 15 and up learn effective real-world self-defense skills and face life with confidence in everything they do.

The philosophy behind Jiu-Jitsu's success lays in the following strategy:
  • Close the distance and clinch
  • Take the attacker/opponent to the ground
  • Establish a safe and dominant position
  • Finish the fight with the application of chokes or joint locks
Class Eligibility

We divide our Adult Jiu-Jitsu Co-ed Program in Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced classes. The age required to join the Adult Program is 15 years of age and above. We specialize in teaching beginners with little to no previous athletic experience. Classes are taught in a group setting that may range from 15 to 30 students per class.

With the recommended minimum of two classes per week, 100% of our students achieve excellent fitness levels and a tremendous boost in confidence in just a few months of training. And, this is just a couple of the benefits you'll get from continuous training.

How Do Our Jiu-Jitsu Classes Work?

All classes are 60 minutes long and are divided into four stages:

Warm Up - Functional exercises designed to strengthen the joints, muscles (especially abs, quads and lower back), increase flexibility, improve coordination, and overall conditioning.

Drills - Immediately after warm up, the instructor demonstrates a series of drills related to the topics being covered that specific month. Intense drilling is essential to develop skills to the fullest. Students pair up with teammates of similar size and rank and drill over a period of 2, 3, 4 or 5 minutes depending on the technique. This stage of training helps students develop muscle memory, develop reflex and continue improving their conditioning.

Specific Sparring - After drilling, students drill with more resistance. Specific goals are set by the instructor and if/when those goals are accomplished students must reset and try it again until time is up. Increased muscle memory and reflex development occur here.

Full Sparring (optional) - This is undoubtedly the most exciting and fun aspect of training. It is as real as it gets! Students try to apply their techniques on fully resisting teammates who are defending and counteracting with their own moves. It's an incredible workout! This type of training teaches the students to feel comfortable in the most uncomfortable positions during a fight. It helps them develop the ability to remain calm and think logically under pressure.

Live training improves conditioning, reflexes, and confidence to levels that one may have previously never experienced. However, this type of training is only gradually introduced after the initial 12-Week Beginner's Program.
