Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Santa Clara
is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on
grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a
dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an
opponent to submit or be knocked out depending on what submission method
is used. The art is a derivative of early 20th century Kodokan Judo,
which was itself then a recently-developed system (founded in 1882),
based on multiple schools (or Ryu) of Japanese Jujutsu.
Our Head Instructor, Pitbull Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Tom Cissero, offers classes 7 days a week. His focus on hard training
allows his students to reach and exceed their potential by maintaining
the fighting spirit in each match. Every student is expected to face one
another no matter what rank, size, strength, age, or sex. Doing so makes
a student feel confident against any opponent. His versatility in other
arts such as Wrestling, Judo, and Muai Thai gives students a well
balanced understanding of fighting. His unique approach of Gi and no-Gi
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers another dimension of the ground arts by
preparing you to every possibility of self defense. His ability to
explain and differentiate street fighting and sport fighting gives
students understanding of what to do when and why.
