Virginia Jiu-Jitsu Academy

Virginia Jiu-Jitsu Academy offers Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Combatives, Bullyproof and Women's only Self-Defense, for ages 7 and up

We offer Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Combatives, Bullyproof and Women's only Self-Defense, for ages 7 and up (some classes/programs are age restricted).

Martial Arts are not just for self-defense. Like any sport or training program, it can help improve coordination, stamina, strength, flexibility, and more. But beyond the physical benefits, martial arts can also lead to improved concentration, relaxation and reduced stress. Many students also benefit from a greater sense of self-confidence and improved discipline.

Rolling Loop Choke by Rafael Lovato jr.

Master Pedro Sauer's Interception Philosophy Will Revolutionize Your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Game Long before I ever met Pedro Sauer I had the opportunity to take a seminar taught by one of the great masters of jiu-jitsu.

Help us BULLYPROOF Keaton Jones! (Please Share)

The only true solution to bullying is to inspire our youth to have respect and compassion for one another, and this begins with the parents. Until this culture shift happens, we need to empower kids with the verbal skills and the non-violent self-defense techniques to take a stand and set boundaries with potential bullies. We have all the tools to help Keaton and we want to sponsor him and his family to come to California for one week of Gracie Bullyproof training. If anyone has contact with Keaton's family, please forward this video and have them contact us at
