Join us at one of our meetups to get better and faster. We make sure to respect one another and motivate each other to beat our goals and of course—enjoy our time together.

Competing teaches you important lessons that will make you a stronger version of yourself. And that is what BJJ is all about. Everyone may have a different goal that brought them to the sport, but BJJ has a way of bringing people together that possess the same desire for self-improvement. 

Competition is for everyone, from casual to professional. When you’re just starting out, get your coach’s input on when to begin, and follow your team! Most importantly, competition will show you where you need to improve after you leave the competition. A medal may be nice to have, but BJJ is about improving and that will require work after you get back home!
