The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club is comprised of jiu-jitsu artists, wrestlers, judo artists, and other martial artists and athletes. Through teaching the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, the club offers students the opportunity to learn self-defense, participate in an exhilarating sport, experience team comradery, and alleviate the stress of college life.

We welcome anyone who would like to delve into the art of Brazilian jiu jitsu. No previous experience necessary!

TRAINING

We currently hold practices at the following times:

  • Mondays 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Wednesdays 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Fridays 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

All practices occur in Multipurpose Room D of the Herbert Wellness Center. Multi-D is on the second floor; take a left after climbing the stairs. Follow the hallway and turn right. Multi-D is on the right, immediately after multipurpose room C.

Practice consists of a warm-up, technique instruction, drilling, sparring, and open mat time at the end for questions, training, socializing, or anything else members may have an interest in.

We train both gi and no-gi. Please wear comfortable athletic attire and bring your gi if you own one. We recommend wearing shorts without pockets and fitted or compression clothing so that your clothing doesn’t interfere. The use of a mouthguard is recommended (though not mandatory).

Welcome to the UM Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club and happy training!
