Grappling (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling)

What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu translates into the gentle art, and promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can defend against a larger, heavier opponent by using proper technique and leverage. It is one of the most useful martial arts in real life self defense, but also offers many opportunities for practitioners with a competitive spirit.

Meet Cesar Cabrera

Cesar is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under the Renzo Gracie lineage. His training and breadth of experiences extends over 30 years. He is a true believer that making the decision to pursue the journey of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu changed his life. Now, he spreads his knowledge to each of the students that are a part of the grappling program.

I’ve studied under Cesar any time I’ve had the chance over the last five years, and benefited enormously from his teaching. As a smaller person I’ve loved his technical perspective. As a human, Cesar has really helped me to grow as a person through the art of Jiu jitsu, which, as he teaches it, is truly an all-encompassing form of self defense and high level grappling.

Daniel Finn Metcalf

I know Cesar for few years now and I can say with all certainty that he is one of the best teachers that I have met in my life of MA. Not only you can get a good insight into technical aspect of this subtle and brainy art but also into its philosophy and life application. The man has talent for teaching; sometimes in an hour session you can get months worth of material whether you are new to it or already spent some years studying. His classes are always challenging and enlightening.
