Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling can be used both as martial arts and as sports.  They both emphasize grappling and submissions.  Both are two of the best and most effective martial arts for self-defense.  Getting in shape and losing weight are great benefits of both.  In a typical class, students will practice technique, drills, and live sparring.  You will learn how to defend yourself against bigger, stronger opponents.  In addition to improving your agility, flexibility, and stamina, you will make new friends and have fun as well.  Please contact us if you would like more information about Charlotte Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

Visiting this gym from out of town was awesome! John, the owner was a great human being. He took the time to talk and... get to know me. He came across as very caring and humble. He made me feel very comfortable the moment I met him and this seem to rub of on his students as well. Thanks for the roll. I surely be coming back next time am in town.read more

I tried my first class here in April of 2019 and instantly fell in love with the sport and the gym. Piper, the head... coach, is super welcoming and everyone in the gym is willing to teach and has something different to offer (wrestling backgrounds, judo backgrounds, etc.). CJJA is my home away from home and I've been training for almost two years now. Super laid back and not affiliated with any teams. Perfect for if you want to visit, compete, or just learn! CJJA offers gi classes, no gi classes, and open mat!read more

I love the community here. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the techniques and sparring strategies. Glad to... see that I'm not the only female in class as it is usually the case in many schools. There are plenty of ladies in class. There's a healthy vibe where everyone is cooperative. I'm happy to call this place my new BJJ homeread more
