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.

Why Jiu Jitsu?

Enhances overall health and wellness
Engages the brain
Teaches discipline
Builds interpersonal communication skills

Meet Your Instructor

Our American Jiu Jitsu instructor, Coach Javian may have started their own journey at 18, but now they’re all about guiding kids through the world of Jiu Jitsu at Iron Legion. With a background in MMA, kickboxing, and Jiu Jitsu, they know a thing or two about the mat. Their coaching style? It’s all about building up mental and physical strength, so those kiddos can roll through any challenge on and off the mats. At Iron Legion, Coach Javian is all about fostering a love for Jiu Jitsu in the next generation, helping them find their flow and grow into confident grapplers.

‘My coaching philosophy is straightforward, yet immensely powerful. I firmly believe in training others to confront the reality of violence, whether it’s against a skilled adversary or someone untrained. My aim is to equip my students with the mental fortitude and physical prowess required to perform when it truly matters.’
