Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that is considered the most effective and complete art of self-defense.  It is predominantly a ground fighting art where the strategy is to avoid punches and kicks while attempting to clinch the opponent and take them to the ground where their striking strategies are weakened and you are able to apply jiu-jitsu techniques to submit the opponent.  The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques are based on leverage, making it possible for the practitioner to beat stronger and heavier opponents.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art where you can apply its submission techniques whether you are on the top or bottom of your opponent.  Today it has gained widespread popularity throughout the world and it is one of the leading martial arts of self defense.

 

At the Silva Academy we believe that embracing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will lead you to also embrace the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle which far extends the world of competition.  It is a way of life that incorporates the art of self defense to promote individual growth of the body, mind and soul.  In turn, this art gives much back as it encourages changes in the everyday lifestyle that profoundly impact one’s life.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can empower you with the knowledge that you can defend yourself, it can fill your life with friendships and memories and it can also create a new professional path where doors are open throughout the world as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is truly an international sport where black belts are highly desired and respected as instructors or professional fighters.

 

Our programs are designed with the assumption that each student’s goal is to attain a black belt and we strive to provide the student with a natural progression of knowledge that will take them for the introductory, basic techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the highly technical knowledge of the black belt. At Aloisio Silva BJJ we strive to help you make the most of your training by providing a variety of programs and class settings so that together we can create the perfect learning environment for you.
