TECHNIQUE OVER SIZE & STRENGTH
GRACIE BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
A martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by understanding body mechanics, using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.
BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training.
We offer training for the whole family with our children's, co-ed and women's only classes.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"No hidden fees or tricky wording in contracts, no fluffed resume with words, associations and acronyms that don't mean anything. At this gym, 30 days free means 30 days free, not just the first 30 minutes are free then you get hit with huge costs. Shawn is upfront with the cost, which is more than reasonable, and completely transparent on his experience and training, which is the best you will find in this area. Awesome clean gym with strong family atmosphere that offers excellent instruction for children as well as adults. I have only been going for three weeks and am amazed at what I have learned in this short time. Highly recommend this gym to anyone who just wants to get in shape, tech their children about self defense or learn the art of BJJ, and you can do it all as a family!"
"I walked in at 40 years old with no prior experience at all. It is extremely professional and clean. There was no paperwork or sales pitch. Just come in for 30 days free and enjoy Jiu-jitsu. I would highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to learn Jiu-jitsu and self defense."
"I went in expecting at least someone to not want to help the new guy or have a toxic personality which made me a little nervous about going. By the time I left I felt like the hour wasn’t long enough."
"I highly recommend T.O.S.S for children to adults. My daughter feels comfortable with the instructors, Shawn is an amazing teacher who is respectful, knowledgeable, and knows just how to encourage children to improve without being pushed too hard. My husband really enjoys the classes and structure as well. Bonus- they just moved into a new larger facility which shows just how good they are. You can tell their heart is for the community and people."
"Our family loves this place. The head instructor does an amazing with the kids. Outstanding place to learn BJJ."
"Shawn is an awesome, true Gracie jujitsu instructor. He teaches by the book literally. He has a talent to break it down for everyone (doesn't matter what level you are at) to understand. Also a fun way to stay in shape."
