WHY BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU IS THE BEST MARTIAL ART FOR YOU?

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principals of leverage, angles, pressure and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on striking, Jiu Jitsu focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, with the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.

Parents of Jolene and Tucker Seaman:
My children have enjoyed their time at Light City. As a parent, it has been very encouraging to see my children grow in self-confidence and expand their BJJ skill sets. They both enjoy the competitiveness of the art and continuing to improve their techniques. I love that they have committed to a healthy hobby that pushes them to be a better version of themselves.

Parents of Gunner Rutledge:
Gunner has been a student of Professor Craig Sylvia at Light City Martial Arts for just shy of a year. Without a doubt & unequivocally, the changes that have taken place in my son physically, mentally, emotionally & socially have been and continue to be nothing short of incredible. Gunner and I both discovered very early on that BJJ is incredibly hard, but so has been his resolve. If strength of body & of character are forged by determination & perseverance in the face of difficulty and discomfort, then Light City has been an incubator for confidence & self esteem in my son to a degree that I’ve only ever seen in him now as he progresses on through his training.
