To a success-minded individual looking to kick things up a notch:

I’ve seen our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes work wonders for guys and gals of all sizes and ages – time after time…

BJJ Madison WI Classes 2I’ve seen scrawny guys weighing 130 pounds take down brutes weighing 260.

BJJ Madison WI Classes 3I’ve seen petite women embarrass men twice their size.

BJJ Madison WI Classes 4And I’ve seen competition fighters reach the level of champions sooner than they ever thought possible.

Master The Style That Beats Everything

You might have heard of this Brazilian guy named Royce Gracie. He shocked the world when he used Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to DOMINATE bigger Kickboxing, Karate, and Tae Kwon Do black belts in UFC 1 and 4.

Indeed, he tapped many of them out in just MINUTES. Now you can learn the very same techniques that will allow you to take down and submit any opponent, even if they’re twice your size and strength!

Burn Fat & Build Muscle While Having FUN

Are you training hard but finding it impossible to build muscle and burn fat?  Some people come to our BJJ Madison classes just for the fitness results.

Why? Because your entire body gets ripped and athletic while burning hundreds of calories per session. 

That’s because Brazilian Jiu Jitsu leaves no muscle on your body behind. Your abs, arms, and legs all get stronger, leaner, and more sculpted – and the best part is… you’re having a blast the whole time!

Supreme Confidence, Focus, and Discipline

As your body transforms and your movements become automatic, you’ll feel like you’re on a different level than everyone else around you. You’ll learn discipline and focus. The healthy jiu jitsu lifestyle will become your new norm… and your newfound confidence will be noticed by everyone around you.

Real World Self Defense without the Bull

It’s a fact that 9 of 10 fights end up on the ground. Our BJJ Madison classes will prepare you for realistic scenarios other martial arts simply ignore. From headlock defenses, to escapes from bottom positions, these techniques are used by special forces and professional fighters. Why trust anything else with your life?

“Jiu Jitsu keeps me very fit, and it keeps me motivated to do better. It also gave me my self confidence back because I was struggling with very severe depression from horrible life circumstances. It gave me a reason to keep pushing forward and now am almost 100% better than what I used to be.”

“I originally found Journey BJJ offer online and got the 3-class trial offer to just try casually. I couldn’t predict that I would fall in love with  the gym, the people, and the amazing workouts! It is an inclusive, welcoming environment, and that’s important to me. I feel right at home. I highly recommend Journey!!!”

“Amazing instructors, great people! I’m 41 and I feel like I’m in better shape than I was in my 20s! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes have helped me immensely in all areas of my life. Biggest thing is that I feel that I’m able to defend my wife, daughters, and myself if I’m ever in a confrontation. I plan to continue my training for a very long time.”
