Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art that uses principles of leverage and body mechanics allowing a smaller, weaker opponent to defeat a larger person using technique. We provide students with all levels of training, whether you’re a pure beginner or you want to compete and become a world champion. In the class you’ll get a great workout, work on building strength, endurance and athleticism and learn detailed self defense techniques.
Our program covers all grappling arts, including techniques from wrestling, Judo, No Gi grappling and sambo, to ensure a well-balanced and complete curriculum that will get you into great shape.LEARN MORE >
Jiu Jitsu and Judo come from the same roots in Japan, both grappling arts, and both relying on physics to defeat strength. Judo evolved out of Jiu Jitsu, when a gentleman named Jigoro Kano fell in love with the grappling art and spread its practice throughout the world. Kano made Judo into an Olympic sport, and today it is focused on throwing techniques using the Gi, or uniform.
Great for building athleticism, explosive power and self defense on the feet, our grappling curriculum includes Judo attacks and defense as an important part.LEARN MORE >
Wrestling has many different forms and rule-sets, and our style is to incorporate the best techniques from wrestling for self defense and grappling situations. Focused on taking down an opponent and pinning them, wrestling techniques involve grabbing a person’s legs, hips, arms and torso to put them on the ground. We practice it without the gi, or uniform, but many techniques can also be used while wearing the uniform as well.
Wrestling develops speed, power and explosive movements on the feet, both in offensive and defensive situations.
No Gi Grappling / Submission Wrestling
An essential part of our grappling training, specific classes each week are dedicated to No Gi grappling and submission wrestling. Without the uniform, we focus on points of control on the body that allow for takedowns, pins and submissions.
In our more advanced classes, we focus on No Gi grappling and wrestling one night each week, with more emphasis at certain times of year following our competition season.
Muay Thai is a striking art that originated in Thailand and includes strikes with the fists, legs, elbows and knees. We provide the opportunity to learn Muay Thai in a very safe environment, and also make sure to work on the essentials of pure boxing, which is just striking with the fists.
We start by working on your technique, practicing with a partner using boxing mits, Muay Thai pads and all heavy bags. Later, if you want to challenge yourself more, there is the opportunity to step into the ring and do live sparring, all carefully supervised by our professional coaches.LEARN MORE >
Boxing, strikes and defense with the fists, is also an essential part of our martial arts curriculum. Incorporated into our Muay Thai Kickboxing curriculum, we also have dedicated boxing classes where we focus just on this essential art for self defense.
In boxing, our students work to master footwork, proper stance and posture, and proper body movement. From this essential foundation, they work on details of punches, defenses and timing in this striking art.
Mixed martial arts or MMA is the combination of different types of martial arts, made famous by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC. There are really two worlds in MMA, grappling and striking, and both are essential to become a complete fighter and a complete martial artist.
If you study MMA fighters, most study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing, since these arts have the broadest rule sets and more techniques are allowed in practice. Other, more specialized arts like Wrestling and Boxing are also essential.LEARN MORE >
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a beautiful art for women to study because it is designed for the smaller, weaker person to be able to defend themselves against a bigger, stronger opponent or attacker. Many women decide to try BJJ as a way to get into great shape, while building confidence in their self defense skills.
Our women-only class is a community within the family of the school. All of the school’s classes are very female friendly and there are women in all of our group classes, but once a week we get together and work together in a women-only environment.LEARN MORE >
Many women are intimidated by martial arts and wouldn’t dream of trying out a Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. But all women would like to learn how to protect themselves in a self defense situation.
This class focuses on techniques that are specifically effective for women, in both grappling and striking, to give women confidence in self defense situations.LEARN MORE >

Black Belt Club
When kids graduate from our Tiny Ninjas and Little Ninjas programs into more advanced classes they move first into our Black Belt Club program. This program raises the bar in kids athletics, asking “How far can your child go if they are disciplined, focused and determined to overachieve?” We have found that in the right environment, young kids can study and master very advanced martial arts techniques and defeat opponents years older and many pounds heavier than them.
Watch this class one day and you’ll be amazed at the perseverance, determination and self defense ability of our advanced kids. Our Black Belt Club Kids train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu twice a week in classes classes that incorporate Judo and Wrestling into the curriculum, as well as extra weekend Boxing and Muay Thai Kickboxing, as well as Sports and Athletic Development.
Requirements for the class include discipline, focus, grappling ability and mastery of our intro kids curriculum.
After Black Belt Club, our young martial artists move into our Masters Club program. Just like the move from intro classes into Black Belt Club, this jump requires discipline, focus, grappling ability and demonstrated mastery of the Black Belt Club curriculum. Many of the kids in our Masters Club class have been training with us since they were 4 or 5 years old. Now late elementary or middle school students, training martial arts has become a way of life for them, and our school has become a home away from home.
An elite group of motivated athletes, these kids train for two hours three days a week in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ( Gi and No Gi), Judo and Wrestling, and then again on the weekends for an hour and a half of Boxing and Muay Thai Kickboxing.
They also attend our Sports & Athletic Development class, and many of them are members of our Kids Travel Competition Team, which means extra training as well.

Sports & Athletic Development
On Saturdays we have a special Sports & Athletic Development class, where kids from our advanced martial arts programs and our after school program come together to work on becoming the best athletes they can be.
We started this class because over years of teaching kids martial arts we noticed how confidence in athletics affected our students’ self esteem and performance in all areas of their lives. We want our kids to be strong in all directions, with Athletics, Academics, Character and Self Esteem being some of the most important areas.
While all of our martial arts programs include athletic development as a key building block, we created this class to spend a little extra time each week working on specific drills and practice outside of the martial arts. Each week the kids in our Sports and Athletic Development class play a different sport, doing exercises, drills and practice to improve their abilities. Sports include: Soccer, football, baseball, gymnastics, volleyball, track and field and many, many more.
Our After School program is a high-quality, academic-focused program. Our kids, who we call Team Third Law’s Go Getters, arrive at our facility after school and work in an achievement-focused, structured academic environment. Our goal for all our kids is to help them achieve academic success well beyond what is expected of them in school — because we know all kids are capable of great things academically.
In our program we apply our our standards and benchmarks, and when you do that, it’s amazing to see what kids can achieve. We have:
- First graders who know their multiplication tables 12×12
- Kindergarteners doing 3rd grade addition and subtraction, reading and 2nd grade sight words
- 3rd graders doing 6th grade fractions, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Negative Numbers
Kids really are limitless when you give them the tools!
Our first goal each day is to complete and check homework from school. Then we move on to our assignments: Spelling words, Math Word problems, workbooks in all subjects, Spanish language study and more.
After academic time is done, kids participate in martial arts classes, as well as play games, sports and all kinds of fun, physical play that is social, interactive and productive. NO electronic devices or video games are allowed.LEARN MORE >
