Adult BJJ

The BTT Jax Adult Program is designed to teach beginners the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and to help develop experienced practitioners become more well rounded martial artists. Because BJJ is a complex art, understanding and mastering the basics is the cornerstone of any student's success. We offer BJJ in Gi (Traditional Uniform) and No-Gi.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced grappler, in your teens or an adult, our BJJ classes are great for self-defense and sport for both recreational purposes and a serious competitive edge. Benefits include gained confidence and a sense of discipline, as well as a regimented training program you can depend on, a total body workout, increased fitness levels and weight loss.

Youth BJJ

Our Youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program is designed for kids and teenagers ages 4-15. We teach self defense techniques through a combination of skill building games, physical conditioning, and mental preparation. Our students not only improve their coordination, agility, and flexibility, they also develop important character traits and values. The confidence they obtain while learning BJJ ultimately helps them perform better in academics, become more outgoing in social settings, and set higher goals for their future. Most importantly, they have fun with great instructors and friends.

There are many martial arts to choose from, but in our opinion, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the most effective and best suited for a child to learn. BJJ techniques are based on leverage and technique. It is a system designed to help a smaller person defeat a larger opponent, which makes it a perfect fit for kids.

Muai Thai

Students learn traditional Muay Thai striking, defense and footwork, then incorporate them in timed drilling and sparring rounds with a partner.

Muay Thai is a form of hard martial art practiced in large parts of the world, including Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. The art is similar to others in Southeast Asia such as pradal serey in Cambodia, Lethwal in Myanmar, Tomol in Malaysia, and Lao boxing in Laos. Muay Thai has a long histoy in Thailand and is the country's national sport. Traditional Muay Thai practiced today varies significantly from the ancient art Muay Boran and uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in Western boxing.
