What Makes Clifton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy The Best?

We're Committed To Helping You Get Better Every Single Day. Here's How:

Commanding The Basics in Clifton - Clifton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

Commanding The Basics

You've heard it before, fundamentals build the foundation for a successful future. That remains true in every aspect of BJJ and Submission Grappling. You have to learn the basics before you can ever take on advanced strategies and that's why we're committed to helping you build from the ground up without skipping a step.

Dedicating Your Body in Clifton - Clifton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

Dedicating Your Body

BJJ and Submission Grappling are both total body efforts. Just one deficiency can hurt your ability to perform at your very best. That's why we teach you to dedicate every inch of your body to the discipline, learning how one movement affects another and how one muscle sets up the other.

Perfecting Every Element in Clifton - Clifton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

Perfecting Every Element

BJJ strategies are built off natural movements. But you can't get the most out of each movement if you aren't perfecting your efficiency and output. We take time with every element of the sport to help you understand the "how," "why," and "where" of everything you do.

Improving Every Day in Clifton - Clifton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

Your work is never done. There's no such thing as good enough at JMBJJ. We'll never let you get complacent. From the very beginning of your journey through the day when you have mastered it all, you'll take constant steps forwards, never once looking back or feeling satisfied with where you are.

Efrain Rojas is a childhood friend of mine. He always had a profound love for the martial arts. When I turned 44 years old weighing 260 lb he invited me over to train jiu jitsu. I felt weird stepping on to the mats not knowing what to expect getting physical with individual's I've never met ....
