We focus on two martial arts at Grove City Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. The first is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). The adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program will focus on teaching students the techniques and principles that made BJJ the most efficient and effective fighting art in the world. The BJJ classes will be taught with the gi (kimono) however we also will offer no-gi classes. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was first made popular in the United States by Royce Gracie and the UFC in the early 1990's. Since then the popularity of BJJ has grown immensely. For it's effectiveness, it is one of the most sought after martial arts for MMA competition and self-defense. BJJ as it is also known, uses leverage to secure chokes and joint locks allowing a smaller weaker person to defeat a larger, stronger opponent.
If you want to compete in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, MMA, learn for self-defense or just learn BJJ for the sake of learning the most challenging and effective martial art in the world, we can design a program for you. Our head Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor is Dave Freetage. Dave is a BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU BLACK BELT (one of the few in Ohio), under Professor Arthur Ruff. Arthur Ruff also has affiliates located in Phoenix/Mesa Arizona, Alabama. Grove City Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy offers morning and evening classes for adults. We offer the best prices for BJJ in all of Columbus. Email Dave For details and family discounts.
The other martial art we focus on is Muay Thai, also called Thai Boxing, it is the national sport of Thailand. The art of 8 limbs, Muay Thai is a style of kickboxing where you will learn to use punches, kicks, knees and elbows to defend yourself or fight in the ring/cage. Muay Thai is one of the most popular arts used for striking in MMA and is a great art for self defense. This class will have techniques taught, pad work and conditioning. Sparring will also occur for advanced students for those who wish to spar.
This program is taught by CERTIFIED MUAY THAI INSTRUCTORS. Don't fall for any imitators or MMA versions of Muay Thai.
