Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Phoenix Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is a Martial art using leverage so a small person can beat a larger aggressive opponent. Using joint locks, pins, and strangulation. Common goals we help our students with are to lose weight, meet life long friends, and learn to defend yourself. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school is in North Phoenix and part of the Caio Terra Assiciation. Caio is a 7x no gi and 2x Gi World champion.

Martial Arts for Adults

We have an equal amount of Gi and no Gi classes. There are advantages to both and do not cater to either. Mike Martin is the owner of Strong Heart Academy, he teaches and rolls with all his students. Some instructors stop rolling with all students but Mike believes this helps him see where students games are at and how they are developing. Everyone is respected here and many new students have said they belong to feel comfortable very quickly. Our Martial Arts classes always start with warm ups to and to help avoid injury and do we Yoga as well to stretch. The rest of the class is usually part technical instruction, situational, drills and the other half is live rolling. BJJ takes longer than other martial arts to get to to earn a Black Belt. Don’t bother trying to get into shape before your first class. You get in shape by training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; everyone who starts is tired after the initial classes. We have had many successful weight loss stories. Anticipation is the worst part, so contact us today. The Advanced and Basic BJJ practitioners both train in the same class. We believe in this method because there is a lot of knowledge that can be transferred among the students. Students will learn a lot of their game from the Black belts, but there are many willing students to help you advance your BJJ journey.  Don’t go to a typical Corporate BJJ school, come to our Martial Arts Academy.

Adult BJJ Competition

Is competing mandatory at Strong Heart Academy?  The answer is no.  We are here to help guide you through the preparation to compete if that is a goal you take seriously and permission is granted by your parents and by Professor Martin.  If you are not interested in competing there are many other goals to purse like self defense, getting in shape, or just a way to meet people.
