Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class

Brazilian Jui-Jitsu (BJJ) is a combination of martial arts, combat sport, and self-defense. BJJ focuses on grappling and more specifically ground fighting. It promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper techniques to take the fight to the ground.  

Unit 2’s Beginner Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class teaches you the fundamentals of BJJ and how to effectively use the techniques learned. This class, which lasts about an hour, begins with a warm up, followed by instruction then drilling. Upon successful completion of this class you are ready to enter the Advanced BJJ class.

The Advanced BJJ class lasts from 1.5 to 2 hours.  This class is perfect for professional MMA fighters, hobbyists, and students who wish to compete in BJJ.  In this class you will learn advanced techniques, drill techniques, and roll (spar) all in a safe and team oriented atmosphere. 

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team has proven itself to be one of the best BJJ teams on the east coast.  We have instructed numerous top professional fighters who have competed in the UFC, WEC and Strikeforce.  Unit 2 has a proven track record of producing champions at all levels of competition from Georgia’s NAGA (North American Grappling Association) Tournament  to the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, known more commonly as the Mundials, in California.  Since 2007, we have placed first or second in the Adult No-GI, Adult Gi, Kids and Teen divisions and the Overall Championship numerous times at the Georgia NAGA Tournament.
