Bay Area Jiu-Jitsu academy is the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program branch of Bay Area Boxing. Founded in 2010 we have been serving the greater Belmont area with quality BJJ instruction in a fun and safe atmosphere.
Jiu-Jitsu literally translated from Japanese mean the gentle art. Although BJJ is a very physical combat sport it is the only martial art on the planet that teaches you to be able to control and submit an opponent without causing them bodily harm. With multiple guard positions, guard passes, sweeps, pins and submissions BJJ is an entire universe of techniques. As a school we focus on the sport aspect of BJJ which allows for a limited rule set where some techniques are illegal as well as the unlimited self-defense aspect. Jiu-Jitsu offers a range of physical and psychological benefits to a practitioner including a high level of cardiovascular health, effective muscle toning, self-defense and profound stress relief. In children BJJ is a vessel to build discipline, respect, confidence, character development, and humility.
Our BJJ program is lead by Ralph Gracie Black Belt Brian Fernandez and his students Jake DeIaco (black belt) and Gavin Chase (brown belt). Jake DeIaco has been training 10 plus years and will be heading our kids’ program (6 to 12 year olds). Gavin Chase leads the beginner classes. Mr. Fernandez has been leading the adult program for 9 plus years and has over 20 years of experience.
