Here at Carlson Gracie Columbus, we pride ourselves in offering the aggressive, attacking Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) style pioneered by Carlson Gracie. This style of BJJ is one of the most widely recognized, with success in real fighting applications. It also recognizes that size, strength and speed are factors that must be dealt with in any physical confrontation. We emphasize reversals and escapes from disadvantaged positions, superior positioning, control and takedowns to ensure real world results. When each of these elements is in place, the submissions Brazilian jiu jitsu is known for can be applied more easily. Therefore whether your goal is self-defense, sport competition, or learning to grapple for mixed martial art (MMA) fighting, our program is perfect for you. Our small class sizes offer the most individual instructor attention for each student. We pride ourselves in producing maximum increase in skill in the minimum amount of time.
