Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling an opponent in ways that force him or her to submit via limb locks and stragulations. This may sound violent, but the way we practice here is more strategic and mentality focused, rather than relying on raw strenght or physical prowess. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu technique is centered around the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and achieving dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless. To control and overcome an opponent’s greater size and strength is accomplished by using superior leverage, grip and position.

Why we love

Jiu Jitsu

 

You’ve heard about and seen Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in action, but feeling it is another story. It gives you the power to manipulate others with ease due to supiriour techniques and skills. Think of it as a super power that only requires diligent attendance and dedicated instructors to attain. We believe Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the most effective martial art in the world for self defense, but also an incredible way to develop both your mind and your body. 

"Although we learn to be tough here, it doesn't feel that way. Everyone is welcoming and it feels like family"

WHETHER IT’S YOUR FIRST OR 100TH CLASS. PLEASE REMEMBER:

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling martial art. There are no punches, kicks or strikes.
  • Do your best to be on time, especially if it is your first time. 
  • If it is your first time, please make sure you speak with our staff to get the go ahead before attending.
  • DO NOT WEAR SHOES ON THE MAT, but ALWAYS wear shoes/slippers off the mat.
  • HYGIENE IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR BJJ PRACTICE. ALWAYS shower, trim nails and wash all training gear before every class.
  • DO NOT attend class if you are sick or have any skin infections.
  • ALWAYS remove all jewelry, watches and step counters before class.

Training partners are everything. Each one adds a unique attacking and defensive aspect to your martial game.

“This review is from the perspective of someone new to DC and new to martial arts. I tried two other gyms before settling on EvolveAll. There was hardly a contest, in terms of the welcome my roomie and received, as well as the kindness of the staff and owner. I chose a BJJ membership where I have the opportunity to join about three classes per week (as a beginner, more as you grow), access to a weight-lifting space, and free reign to practice rolling when there is a free mat.”

“I started out taking the beginner jiu jitsu class with Emerson, then began attending the striking class with Herill and all-levels jiu jitsu with Cesar.  And I’m hooked on it.  I’ve had days where I get off work and I feel terrible; I just want to sit on my couch and drink a beer.  But I’ll push myself to go to class and I’ll feel a thousand times better afterwards.  I learn something new every day, and everyone — instructor and student alike — is super helpful and super nice.  I recommend anyone who is interested in checking out a fitness or self-defense class to come by, and you’ll realize the same thing that I’ve realized: Evolve All is about more than just fitness and self-defense — it is a community!”
