   Mindset Martial Arts is a great place to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA. When I first came to train at this gym I expected the experience to be similar to my other experiences with martial arts: A hard-ass Cobra Kia Teacher, a bunch of guys trying to prove how tough they were, and a hands-off approach to learning. Mindset Martial Arts couldn’t be more different. The staff is attentive and approachableNot only has the staff answered every technical question I have ever posed as a newcomer to BJJ, they have also taken me to other dojos to train with new training partners.  Over the three months I have trained at Mindset Martial Arts Fighter I have built solid BJJ skills and I have forged a friendship with the teachers. In addition to the outstanding staff, Mindset Martial Arts Fighter also teaches very solid technique. Over course of my training my skill has increased exponentially; I went from knowing next to nothing about Brazilian Jui Jitsu, to beginning to hold my own against more experienced training partners. If you live in the Bay Area and are looking for an awesome place to train BJJ, MMA, or Boxing and learn from a hands-on and knowledgeable staff, then Mindset Martial arts has what you are looking for.

How Does Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Work?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu other wise know as (BJJ) is a  grappling martial art that uses techniques, which enables practitioners to subdue their opponents without the use of kicks or punches. This eliminates the need to use excessive force in real life self defense situations. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu emphasizes the use of leverage and technique over strength and power. The effectiveness of BJJ has been demonstrated in real life situations, military, special forces training, and in Mix Martial Arts competitions such as the UFC.

Yes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for everyone of any age!
