Gracie BLACK BELTAcademy
Jiu Jitsu for Self Defense
LEXJJ Mission StatementOur mission is to provide an effective Gracie Jiu Jitsu program to Lexington, SC. Our classes are taught in a positive, friendly, high energy, family oriented environment. Lexington Jiu Jitsu wants each and every martial arts student to have fun learning Jiu Jitsu, and walk away with the ability to defend themselves in a real world attack. Jiu Jitsu has proven itself to be effective regardless of your size, strength, age or athletic ability. While many martial arts systems are developed as a competitive sport, Lexington Jiu Jitsu recognizes that in a real street fight the idea of sportsmanship goes out the window. There are simply no point systems or time limits. There are no referees or coaches. There are no weight divisions to fairly match up opponents. Learning Jiu Jitsu from the Lexington Jiu Jitsu will prepare you both physically and mentally to deal with these facts in a real world self defense arena.
