Our Ju-Jitsu programs are high energy, fast-paced classes which address self defense from day one. First, students learn how to roll and fall safely then graduate to throws, sweeps, joint locks (adults only) and grappling methods.

This system incorporates a great deal of striking and pad work in addition to its in depth approach to close quarter combat training. Ju-Jitsu training will equip the student with practical self defense skills for every possible, imaginable attack scenario. Ju-Jitsu translates to "gentle art" or the "art of pliability or flexibility".The student of Ju-Jitsu, Ju-Jitsuka, learns how to stay calm under very difficult situations.

The Ju-Jitsu motto is "go with the flow". In addition, Ju-Jitsu practice is focused on physical, mental and character development in its practitioners. All classes are instructed by Renshi Mark Baker, who holds black belt ranks in two systems of Ju-Jitsu, and has over 27 years experience in the martial arts.

The kids' Ju-Jitsu program is geared for children under 13, and therefore does not employ joint locks and only certain chokes at this level.
