Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art based on ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit. It prides itself in being known as the “gentle art”, allowing a smaller, weaker person to use leverage and submissions (chokes, locks) to defend himself against a bigger opponent.

What our clients say.
Ever since that first class, I have been hooked on learning the skills and techniques for self defense! It is a completely different sport mentally and physically that challenges me to focus during class and makes me more confident each time. I feel so grateful for the support and skills I have learned from Professor Jackson, Rafael, and the other classmates that all want you to succeed and enjoy jiu-jitsu just as much as they do!
Rebecca Costigan from Google
The guidance of Professor Jackson and his whole team is amazing. They teach the children with so much love and care, removing any inhibitions and improving their confidence. My son has so much fun learning incredibly valuable life skills. It’s fantastic to see the kids working so hard and becoming stronger, physically and emotionally, without even realizing. The team encourages the kids to behave well at home, at school and with their peers. They are taught why, and how, it’s important to be able to defend themselves and use their skills appropriately. Classes are so much more than we expected and there is no better way or place for our son to be spending his time.
Aysha E. From Yelp
Jiu-Jitsu changed my life, and most of that is due to Professor Jackson Fortunato, the instructor at Memorial Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. His instruction is clear, concise and patient. Jackson genuinely cares about everyone who he trains. You’re not just a dollar sign like you are at some facilities. He cares about the art and lifestyle and tries to instill those things in you. BJJ has helped my confidence immensely, an I wouldn’t want to train with anyone else. Memorial Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is where it’s at!
Mike C. from Yelp
I’ve trained at other schools where the professors try to teach too much at once, or give too much attention to the people who compete and not enough to the average Joe’s that are just trying to learn a craft or get a little exercise. Jackson gives equal attention to everyone, and treats everyone with respect and kindness. Can’t recommend this school, or the skills of the teachers enough. Great place to train!
