fluxo: (flooks/owe) portuguese 'flow'
Fluxo Jiu Jitsu is about being able to flow into, and out of good or bad situations. It's about possessing a strong base in fundamentals so that any position is neither good, or bad. I feel this is the point of studying martial art, and specifically; Jiu Jitsu. When our bodies are strong, and educated we tend to have a solution no matter the circumstance.

Structure and Vision…
I am a proponent of physical education. I feel, the yield of any physical education worth studying should be an increase of physicality, as well as technicality.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been my subject of study for 11 years. The study of Jiu-Jitsu has allowed me the technical ability to defend myself against those physically superior--but something unintended happened along the way: The longer I studied Jiu-Jitsu the more I became physically and technically superior to the past versions of my self.
I got stronger, and better than me, year after year.
It's for this reason I choose to now teach and share Jiu-Jitsu. I've also realized, that to teach Jiu-Jitsu, is a matter of sharing in the most efficient way possible.
I feel the job of the teacher is to provide an organized framework in which students can easily participate, and progress in. As much as you will find a beautiful martial art here, you will also experience an educational system designed for you to absorb in a palatable way.
Yours in Jiu-Jitsu,
Serving as the foundation of Jiu Jitsu, the white belt curriculum is communicated under the assumption of a punch based street attacker. How do we survive? How do we escape? and how do we defend?--these are our main inquiries here.
When you can't lose, you win. The blue belt curriculum and up is about Jiu Jitsu in a more offensive way. This is where you explore all the dimensions and opportunities for winning.
Learn. Play. Together. MIXED AGES
Saturday 10:00 - 11:00 am
Older children are excellent role models, helpers and teachers to younger kids. Mixed ages class on Saturdays permits children to learn and play together, this allows for a more creative, less competitive and a more conducive class for experimentation. For the older children it is a confidence booster, as they are able to pass down the knowledge of skills they have learned. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches us that we can learn from anyone, no matter their level of expertise.
