At IMMARTIAL we make sure you are able to select different type of classes. We are happy to offer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) & No Gi Grappling as well, which can be considered the back bone of the Mixed Martial Arts in combination with Thai/ Kickboxing. BJJ is one of the fastest growing Martial Art in the world.
BJJ at IMMARTIAL is a collaboration with the only black belt on the island sensei Chris Tjon and his gym Medina Grappling. His student and purple belt Fernando Huguett will be IMMARTIAL’ BJJ head coach, but will be under guidance of Sensei Chris Tjon. All our exams will also be done by Sensei Chris Tjon.
Jiu Jitsu, or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as it is commonly named outside Brazil, is a grappling orientated martial art/combat sport that evolved from its Japanese roots in 1920’s Brazil, and continued to evolve for many decades after until its present format. This style though previously established in its native country, became highly popular within the northern hemisphere after a series of performances from BJJ fighter Royce Gracie in the early UFC’s (Ultimate Fighting Championship) where he battled against competitors from many different martial arts backgrounds in the no holds barred tournament, becoming the fighting promotion’s first champion. This event proved Jiu Jitsu’s efficiency and helped raise awareness all around the world, becoming one of the reasons behind the sport’s growth (but not the only one).
