Beginners BJJ, Executive BJJ, No-GI BJJ, Intermediate BJJ, Advanced BJJ – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the core art taught at the Marra Senki Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the art that we teach as developed by the Gracie family of Brazil. Even though BJJ contains standup techniques for winning a fight, it is famous for its devastating ground fighting techniques. BJJ was specifically developed to allow a smaller person to defeat a larger person by sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations becomes the foundation for this fun martial art. BJJ is normally performed in a gi (kimono), which serves as a training tool and gives the student a greater element of control.


Classes for ages 3-5, 6-8, 9-13 The Marra Senki BJJ Kids/Youth program is an innovative children’s martial arts program that was specifically designed to challenge and develop the skills of a pre-teen. This program targets the characteristics of pre-teens and utilizes those characteristics to help them develop physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. The best part about their development is that they are learning and developing through martial arts training. Therefore, your child will build dynamic martial arts capabilities while gaining courage and confidence, and they will learn how to think smarter and harder with children their same age. It is the best formula for success!.


Private lessons while not typical in most martial arts, it has become a large part of training and development in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Private lessons offer the practitioner the opportunity to focus on skills, movements, problems areas, basics, and any other training issues that is specific to each person.Private lessons can be done on a 1-on-1 basis or up to a small group of three anything larger and it becomes a regular class.Private lessons can dramatically increase a practitioner’s skills in a short amount of time, with proper coaching and dedication, group classes and private lessons can be the key difference between moderate or excellence.


At Marra Senki BJJ Academy safety is paramount. Accidents may happen, however, lack of seriousness during training and the resultant careless application of technique or counters contribute greatly to injury. Careless practice is disrespectful to the spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and we do not allow it.

As with other martial arts, the progress of a student is marked with a series of colored belts. The belts in order are: White, Blue, Purple, Brown and Black. We award four stripes for White belt and often award stripes for Blue belt through Brown belt.

Typically, it takes anywhere from 8 to 15 years to attain the rank of Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu. Each belt takes about 2-5 years of dedicated practice.

Martial Arts is great for Children…
A psychological study found that children who study martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.
BJJ techniques are great for children! It’s a remarkable confidence-builder. And in some situations, especially at school and in environments with lawsuit-happy parents, it’s preferable for children to escape a confrontation by forcing their opponent into submission with BJJ techniques rather than beating down their opponent with their fists.
