Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting techniques with the goal of gaining a dominant position over an opponent and forcing them to submit by using joint-locks and choke-holds. BJJ promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. 
Students will gain confidence and competence in their grappling skills by: learning to obtain a dominant position to either secure a submission or escape, utilizing leverage to their advantage regardless of physical size, and practicing the Jigaro Kano principle of "maximum efficiency with minimal effort." The BJJ classes are designed for students who are interested in self-defense, fitness, and personal improvement. Participation in competitions is optional.

BJJ classes at ASKJ are instructed by Black Belt Professors Jon Trizila (under Luiz Palhares) and Shurron Thompson (under Phillip Wyman). Both instructors served as Marine Corps Martial Arts Instructor Trainers (MCMAP) and hold black belts in several additional martial arts along with advanced tactical weapons training. Their knowledge and first hand experiences in combat situations has allowed them to develop a BJJ curriculum focused on techniques that are applicable in real life self-defense scenarios.
