Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the world's fastest growing martial arts and fitness activities. Because of its effectiveness, BJJ has been the cornerstone of mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions. BJJ's emphasis on technique and leverage allows anyone to participate and excel in the art, regardless of age, gender, or physical ability.
If you're looking for a challenging and fun way to attain optimal physical condition, try this technical martial art in a safe, friendly, and ego-free environment. Both adult and kids' classes are taught by Derek DiManno, a BJJ black belt, with over 25 years of combined experience in BJJ, Judo, and wrestling. Derek is the first American-born black belt under 2003 World Jiu Jitsu Champion, Cassio Werneck, and the third BJJ black belt in the Sacramento metropolitan area.
