I have yet to meet a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner whose life hasn't been positively transformed.

Spartan Academy also has No-Gi classes which are grounded in the techniques of traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, with the fundamental principles remaining the same. However, adjustments are made to compensate for the absence of a uniform to hold onto. In this class, you’ll dive into a whole new set of grips. The grips on the wrists, back of the neck, ankles, knees, and elbows differ from the traditional Gi grips.

In No Gi class, students learn a wide range of skills, including takedowns, positions, transitions, escapes, reversals, as well as the application and defense against joint locks, chokes, and other submission holds.

To ensure a safe and comfortable experience, a rashguard is required for attending the class.
