Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting

Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is real Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We are not a BJJ school that knows “just enough”, we teach Real Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our classes are planned, not just from the hip. Each class has a great warm-up that coincides with the BJJ technique. Our curriculum and requirements for promotion will give you what you will need to succeed through the Tooke system. Learn practical self defense in a safe environment at Midtown MMA Houston.

Brazilian Jiujitsu Fitness and Conditioning

Fitness and conditioning is an essential part of any martial art. We have intense cardio drills that prepare you for sparring, develop muscle memory, and prepare you for competition. Many of our warm­ups and drills are unorthodox movements that you will not find at your local gym. These movements will push you to your full potential and get you the results you are looking for.

If it is weight loss you are after, you will get it. If it is lean muscle building, you will achieve it.

Do not hesitate to come in and speak with us about your goals in martial arts. Set your appointment today! Why wait?!


Learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, be a good person, be surrounded by good people and have fun at Midtown Mixed Martial Arts Houston! Jiu Jitsu teaches one to not think about a number or age because Jiu-Jitsu is a lifetime journey.

"BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system." - Wikipedia
