Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport based on ground fighting (ne-waza) and submission holds. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one’s opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds.
BJJ revolves around the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend him/herself against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent. At Platypus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we believe in building confidence, safely handling oneself, and defending against attackers.
Offering both adult and kids’ classes, Platypus BJJ is taught by Lead Instructor Josh Pulsifer, who is currently a 1st degree black belt under Blake Hayes a 3rd degree black belt.
