Dear Reader,

You see that “Warning” at the top there, well, it’s there for good reason. Because if you’re the least bit serious about learning how to defend yourself, then you absolutely must know the proven, “battle-tested” ground-fighting techniques of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu .


Here’s why…

“Most – nearly ALL – fights end up on the ground or in grappling range at one point or another.” That’s a FACT.

Portland Brazilian Jiu JItsu: Getting stacked up
That means basically that if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground, you’re putting yourself (and even your loved ones) at extreme risk.

Let’s face it. If training in our Portland Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a “must-know” thing for profession mixed martial arts fighters like the guys fighting in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) these days, it should most definitely be a “must-know” for pretty much anyone.

That’s because the “fight-ending submissions” and “fight-controlling positions” of our Portland Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have been battle-tested in combat, in a cage, in a ring and on the street.

“Skinny Guy From Brazil Wins 1 st UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) Using ‘Secret’ Grappling Techniques”

  Portland Jiu Jitsu: the win

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (or “BJJ”) has been around for a long time, long before a no-holds-barred fighter from Brazil named Royce Gracie made it popular in the early ‘90s when he won the very first UFC – which at the time were “bare knuckle” and had “no rules” – and he won it in dominating fashion, ending all of his fights on the ground using his BJJ “secret techniques”.


The crazy thing about what Royce Gracie did was that he was only around 180 pounds when he fought. He was this skinny little guy; he didn’t “look” like a fighter. But he won and exposed a glaring weakness in all of martial arts… that most people were absolutely clueless on how to defend themselves once a fight got to the ground.

At the time these mysterious moves this fighter was using were secrets to MOST people because hardly anybody in America was aware of them at the time. You had these huge, strong, scary-looking guys who had skills on their feet but once they got within grappling range, the fight went to the ground and it was all over.


“The Ultimate Self Defense & Ground Fighting System”

  Brazilian Jiu JItsu in Portland (Takedown)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed over many, many years as a fighting and self-defense system that will allow a smaller, weaker person to control a much bigger, stronger opponent using technique.

These techniques were proven effective in combat years ago and still today, the world’s top mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters are ALL learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

And just because the world’s best fighters are using THIS particular martial art on the ground, doesn’t mean you have to be a “fighter” or some kind of world class athlete to learn it. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for EVERYONE!

“You Don’t Have To Be A Fighter To Enjoy Portland Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes”

  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Portland:  It's for everyone

It doesn’t matter if you’re older or young, if you’re big and looking to lose weight or small and looking to build strength… it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female… or even if you want to compete or not (and in our program, you don’t need to want to compete; most people who want to try BJJ aren’t interested in competition)… in shape or out of shape, ALL are welcome…

As a matter of fact, there are all kinds of people from right here in Portland, OR. discovering the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) training at Northwest Fighting Arts, and if you haven’t checked it out for yourself yet, then, well, you’re missing out big time.

Because while Portland BJJ classes will teach you how to defend yourself once a fight gets in the grappling range or on the ground, it also gets you in great shape, builds strength and flexibility, and is pretty darn fun, too.

Here is some of what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training here at Northwest Fighting Arts Will Do For You…

Shows You How To Defend Yourself – You’ll learn how to defend yourself on the street, if an attacker grabs you, and you’ll discover how to handle things once a fight goes to the ground – whether you’re on the top or on the bottom… and even if your attacker is much bigger and stronger than you  are. Because BJJ is based on using superior leverage and body positioning to overcome bigger stronger attackers, it is one of the most important martial arts to learn

Encourages Fat Loss – BJJ is a martial art that focuses on total body positioning, meaning you’re using 100% of your body at all times to maximize its effectiveness. That means your cardio will get better along with your overall body strength, resulting in fat loss. By practicing BJJ you will work every single muscle in your body – doing that burns a lot of calories, which in turn burns a lot of fat.

Women's Jiu Jitsu Builds Strength, Power & Endurance – You will strengthen and develop muscles you never even know existed! But don’t let that scare you…it’s a good thing… because instead of building up useless, bloated gym muscles, you’ll develop real, functional muscles and functional strength by doing sport-specific exercises… while still being able to make your body look fantastic.

Develops Mental Toughness – It takes a degree of mental toughness to put yourself in uncomfortable positions at the mat. When someone is trying to control you, it can get even more uncomfortable – especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. However, by learning BJJ and applying the concepts, you’ll feel more in control of your body and your mind, and the uncomfortable positions will soon become no problem.

Improves Your Cardio & Conditioning – You’ll get in kick-butt shape learning how to do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with us. Just by coming to practice and learning the moves, your body will start to transform and your muscles will condition themselves to handle the training. You’ll notice your cardio and breathing getting better, your lungs will get stronger and you’ll feel your muscles get more toned. A bonus of all that is that not only will you feel better, you’ll look better… and people WILL notice.

Increases Your Flexibility – You won’t become muscle-bound and stiff like many people do who just lift weights all the time. You’ll still build strength training BJJ while at the same time become more flexible. You don’t have to be flexible to start training BJJ.

Reduces Stress – It’s a fact that regular exercise is not only healthy – it’s a key element in reducing stress in your life. A problem with plain-old “gym workouts” is that they usually get pretty boring – but not with BJJ training – with BJJ training, you’re in a positive environment of constant learning (which is another key element in stress reduction). You’re getting taught by our trained instructors to continually get better each and every time you step on our mats… and not only that, you’ll have coaches and teammates helping you along the way. So if you’ve had a stressful day, you can rest assured your stress levels will be reduced the minute you walk into our academy.

kyra gracie Doesn’t Get Boring… In Fact, It’s FUN! – Our students are having a ton of fun learning BJJ. Let’s face it. Going to a regular gym can be boring, especially when you’re going through the same old routine day in and day out. Instead of walking from machine to machine like some kind of zombie, you’ll be able to actually learn something that could save your life while at the same time getting in spectacular shape and learning to defend yourself. You’ll be constantly learning and applying techniques that could save your life and you’ll be doing it in an atmosphere that promotes fun and learning.

Now that we’ve covered some of the benefits you’ll get from training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with us (and we’re going to cover even more below), let’s answer an important question…

WHO Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu For?

“BJJ Is For EVERYBODY! Literally, ANYONE Can Do It!”

Here’s why…

Since BJJ is based on techniques designed to allow a smaller, weaker person to defeat a bigger, stronger attacker, it doesn’t matter how big or small you are. You you’re big, no problem. Small, skinny, even if you think your “weak”… it doesn’t matter. BJJ techniques can be applied by anyone because it’s based on leverage and positioning… and the added benefit is that you’ll get stronger, healthier and more fit from the training with us.

 Check out this rave review…

I have been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Gracie Barra in Seattle for just over 2 1/2 years. Gracie Barra is an intense and magnificent school but my dilemma has been that I work in Portland during the week and return to my home in Seattle and only get to train on Saturdays and occasional Fridays. GB Seattle teaches in-depth fundamentals on every other training day but Fridays and Saturdays which are reserved for rolling. As a consequence, my foundation in BJJ was severely lacking which resulted in slow progression and increasing frustration. I decided to seek out a BJJ school in Portland where I could train once a week to bolster my fundamentals. My criteria in selecting a school was that it teach good BJJ fundamentals and that the instructors and students are considerate and friendly. I joined NW Fighting Arts and was immediately impressed by the rapport that I was able to establish with instructors and students – both of whom, I am pleased to say, take an active interest and stake in seeing that everyone progresses. Fundamental and technique training has been exceptional and my progress is easily measured. I need only compare how I was doing at GB in Seattle prior to joining NW Fighting Arts and compare how I am doing now. I still have a very long way to go but since joining NW Fighting Arts my abilities have improved exponentially. Thank you NW Fighting Arts. – Kevin, External Arts Member

“This school is not a joke! I checked out a lot of schools prior to this one and all I found were a bunch of ego maniacs jumping around pretending they were Superman. The instructors at NWFA are very helpful and will always help you out when asked. I’ve been a student for about a year and a half and I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned how to relax and how to focus which are the most important things when learning a martial art. So come on down and check out a class, you will see that I’m right.” -Rick
