Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kickboxing & MMA
Technique. Intensity. Family.
At Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Olympia, we believe that all of us can grow to be the best we can be through involvement and immersion in intense conditioning/athletic programs. Our aim is to provide you with all of the tools needed to meet your goals as an athlete, to become the best version of yourself possible.
You will train with goals in mind, not just to be the best at working out.
We strive for long term health, functionality, maximum intensity, and realistic effectiveness. We support each other in reaching these goals as a family.
We will provide you the tools and the environment to attain your personal fitness and training goals.
The goals and focus are the same throughout the gym: Technical, Intense Training that is grounded on attaining maximum physical conditioning and results.
Each new student is a welcome addition to our family, and as you progress, you will develop the skills and push the performance of your teammates.
We focus on learning; we all become better when a new student improves. This is not a shark tank or a parade of egos: this is where we become better.
Become the person you knew you could always be: physically, emotionally, spiritually…
Please stop in and see us, or call if you have questions. We would very much enjoy talking with you about your goals and how we can assist you in meeting them!
