About Pure Jiu Jitsu

We are a fun and family orientated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school that is here to support our local community. Our vision for the academy was to offer world class instruction in a traditional yet modern and stylish environment, that focused solely on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, instead of following the popular trend of being a MMA school.

From building strong and resilient children that can bully proof themselves, to changing lives of adults, our goal is to make sure that all of our students have the confidence to face life’s obstacles and handle pressure with a clear mind and confidence.
