The days of going to a martial arts gym with a "survival of the fittest" mentality are over. At 417 BJJ you will learn in a controlled atmosphere alongside others who also want to learn Jiu Jitsu. We have instruction for the person wanting or needing self defense as well as the person who wishes to be a high level competitive athlete.

SELF DEFENSE: A Jiu Jitsu program designed specifically for those who wish to defend themselves against violent attack  situations.

A violent attack dfense is much different than a sportive competition. 

In this one-month course, men and women at 417 BJJ are taught to defend themselves from much larger and much more aggressive attackers. They are taught to survive these dangerous situations through the use of Brazlian Jiu Jitsu techniques strictly based on leverage and timing, not speed and power. 

Those completing this program will will receive a self defense certificate. Enroll today to assure a position for yourself or your loved one. New Classes starting every month.
