Elevation Jiu Jitsu

bJJ for

We recently started BJJ for teens, after setting up our program for adults and young children it was time to offer classes specifically aimed at teens. These lessons are specially aimed at teenagers aged 12 – 17 years.

BJJ classes give young people the opportunity to learn an invaluable self-defense system. It increases their self-confidence and improves resistance to peer pressure. Our instructors will teach important skills and techniques that will teach them how to physically defend themselves without using excessive violence. We currently offer classes for teens on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not only the ultimate self-defense system, but also a great workout and packed with personal benefits that will stay with your teen for a lifetime.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is a martial art that focuses on bringing the opponent to the ground as quickly as possible - through a takedown, throw or shoot - and then continue with the fight on the ground. The object of the game is to make the opponent give up as quickly as possible by means of various holds, locks and chokes. Moving the fight to the ground removes the advantage a more skilled standing fighter has.


This can also be seen in the main Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competitions, of which the UFC is an example. Most of these matches are decided on the ground. It is therefore important for every fighter, of whatever discipline, to master the ground fight. Practice shows that 80% of street fights end on the ground.

Technique beats strength

BJJ uses techniques that work on the fundament of leverage, timing and weight distribution. This allows a smaller, weaker person to win against bigger, stronger opponents. This is not just theory, as in most martial arts, but this is everyday practice during training and sparring on the mat. Do you want to experience this yourself?
