What is
American Jiu Jitsu?

American Jiu Jitsu official definition: a unique, scenario-based self-defense art that teaches students to respond to realistic situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and knowledge of human anatomy.

In layman’s terms? American Jiu Jitsu is the evolution of the more widely known Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after folk wrestling was introduced into the artform in the 90s. Folk-style wrestling originated in the colonies, shortly after America was founded. AJJ utilizes the focus on physics and anatomical knowledge to regain control of any situation.

Meet Your Instructor

Our American Jiu Jitsu instructor, Terrie Bourgeois, has been studying and perfecting his Jiu Jitsu and martial art techniques for over 16 years. His ethos and methodology are to train his students to master Jiu Jitsu, leveling up to be superior to him in both technique and foundational understanding. He teaches from a conceptual approach and on a macro level, giving his students the tools they need to produce protective, tactical maneuvers on the fly while fighting.

“I choose to teach a conceptual approach. It is incredibly complex. It takes decades to get good at and this form of fighting is incredibly dynamic. The best way to teach something incredibly complex, is to teach with a philosophical approach. If my students aren’t better than me, I haven’t done my job.”
