Centreville Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Centreville Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Welcome to Centreville Brazilian Jiu Jitsu In my thirty plus years of practicing martial arts, I’ve noticed a common theme: “I’ve always wanted to try a martial art”. Yet so few appear to do so. We at Centreville BJJ believe this is in part due to the mystique and intimidation of the martial arts. For many, it’s scary to take that first step: to get up off the couch and walk through the door of your local martial arts academy. At Centreville BJJ, everyone remembers their first day and goes out of their way to help you. Once you walk through the door you’ll be greeted by a friendly and inviting team. Fr ... View Profile

As a teenager, I was almost abducted. That was a real eye-opening experience. I learned that you can’t just “know” some self-defense, you need to have reflexes and have the ability to execute what you know. But beyond that, you MUST be in the right condition to protect yourself. I have had the absolute pleasure of training “WITH” and “UNDER” several Great Martial Arts Masters over the years, including 7 Time World Karate Champion & Creator of Tae Bo, Billy Blanks, The Legendary Guro Dan Inosanto and undefeated World Kickboxing Champion Pete “Sugarfoot” Cunningham, to name a few.
