What Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Is All About

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the world’s fastest growing martial art, largely thanks to the spotlight it’s received from the UFC and reputation for real world effectiveness in self-defence. BJJ (as it’s often referred to) has become a staple for law enforcement and military personnel as the premier form of controlling and nullifying opponents in the most safe and effective way regardless of opponents size. BJJ has also earned extreme popularity among women, children and people of all ages and abilities for it’s diverse training structure and accessibility. Ascendant offers a complete array of classes for all levels and ages (including women’s only) in both Gi (wearing a traditional kimono) and No Gi (wearing general athletic wear).
