What Can You Expect From Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes?

BJJ is a ground-based discipline that teaches you how to overcome a larger, stronger opponent by using their strength and momentum against them. At Lionheart, we are dedicated to helping you learn the basics of this discipline before building your skills up one step at a time. 

We offer scalable instruction to meet the needs of any skill level and we work hard to maintain an ego-free environment where you train with complete self-confidence. 

In our BJJ classes, you can take on:

  • Powerful throws and takedowns

  • Lightning-quick transitions

  • Ground control and defensive strategies

  • Submission skills to help you come out on top 

And From Day One, We'll Challenge Your Body Like Never Before

Like we said, BJJ isn't all about size and strength. It's about timing, technique, and efficiency. But that doesn't mean we can't also take on a great workout in the process.

This sport is a total-body effort that requires you to move with speed and agility like few other disciplines. And at Lionheart, we're here to coach you through a dynamic series of workouts that can produce real results. 

We're helping beginners AND accomplished athletes:

  • Burn fat and build strength

  • Develop well-rounded athleticism

  • Improve your endurance and muscle tone

  • Boost your self-confidence in no time
