Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes
Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.
Results and growth with every class!
Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.
By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.
It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques
The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.
By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.
Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride
There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.
Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.
Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge
Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.
MABJJA is a great place for people of all ages, genders, and abilities to train martial arts. I have trained BJJ here for over 2 years, and as a woman, I have always felt included and treated with respect from my male training partners and instructors. If you are interested in martial arts, this is an excellent place to start your training!
Great class and great teachers. I have been coming here for a few months and loved it since my first day! It is the perfect place to relieve stress and get into shape even if you don't work out at all. It is also a great place for girls and guys to build up confidence, and grow physically and mentally. Everyone I have met here is extremely nice and it is always a great vibe in each class! I would highly recommend it!

If you are considering training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu read this review fully!
This is a great place to learn BJJ! I signed originally for the 6 week trial period to get my feet wet and fell in love with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the training.
As a beginner I highly recommend this class because Sensi Alex focuses on the basics and building you from the ground up. Sensi told me a great analogy that has stuck with me to this day, "right now you are learning letters, soon you will be making words, before you know it, you'll be creating sentences..." this was a great teaching lesson and a beautiful example of the care and effort Sensi Alex will put into your training.
If you want to compete, learn BJJ for self defense, or just get a great workout this is the spot for you. I would highly recommend that if you have any interest at all, stop in, meet the family and have some fun!
I have been attending Michigan Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a year now. I can say with out a doubt, that ever since I met Sensei Alex, I knew I found the perfect school for me. He has an amazing kids program teaching them how to defend themselves against bullies and gain confidence in a fun environment. The adult program he has is top notch. I am proud to be a student of this amazing school! Thank you Sensei Alex
If you are interested in Aikido or Brazilian Jujitsu, this is the place to be. Alex is a wonderful instructor who takes the time to make sure each student knows what they are doing. Everyone is so helpful and encouraging no matter their rank. When I first started I was very nervous to be mixed in with higher ranks, but I quickly noticed the very respectful atmosphere of the dojo and I felt very comfortable. I enjoy my time here very much.
