BJJ programs

We offer a series of different BJJ Programs, to make sure that there is a class that fits every student’s age and skill-level. We’ve made a description of each Program, so that you know what to expect when showing up for class for the first time.

We offer Intro classes for students with no prior experience. The students will be introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a class that’s been specifically designed for beginners, in which all the fundamentals of the art will be explained in a way that’s easy to understand.

We also offer Kids classes starting from 4 years old and up, so if you want your kid to learn a martial art that’s safe to train and highly effective for Self-defense and Anti-bullying, come visit us here at Progresso Jiu Jitsu. Our Kids Programs have a strong emphasis on teaching the students skills that they can use in other aspects of their life, such as being able to focus and learn new things, being disciplined and respectful, dealing with adversity, and being able to work together with others.
