Here is an overview of the history of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting techniques.
It originated in Brazil in the early 20th century and is based on the principles of Japanese Jiu Jitsu, which were brought to Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese martial arts master, in 1914.Maeda, who was known as "Count Koma," was a student of Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo.
He traveled the world to promote Judo, and in 1914, he arrived in Brazil, where he was introduced to Gastão Gracie, a Brazilian businessman who was interested in learning Judo.
Gracie was so impressed with Maeda's techniques that he invited him to stay with his family, and Maeda taught Judo to Gastão's sons, including Carlos and Hélio Gracie.Carlos and Hélio Gracie began to adapt Judo to suit their smaller statures, and they developed a new style of grappling that emphasized leverage, joint locks, and chokeholds, rather than brute strength.
They called their style "Gracie Jiu Jitsu," and it became popular in Brazil in the 1930s and 1940s.In the 1950s, the Gracie family began to spread their style of Jiu Jitsu to the United States and other parts of the world. They founded the first Jiu Jitsu academy in the United States in 1967, and in the 1990s, they helped to create the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts competition that showcased the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in real-life fighting situations.
Today, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is practiced all over the world and is considered one of the most effective martial arts for self-defense and competition. It is also known for its emphasis on discipline, respect, and personal growth, as well as its welcoming and supportive community.
You usually don't need to own a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi for your first class. T-shirts, board shorts and sweat pants are all fine. Sometimes you can wear a gi or uniform from another martial art (ask the instructor about this issue). You will need to buy a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi if you continue training.
We take teaching seriously. We make sure after every class, you feel that you have learned something new while having fun and getting fit.

King jiu-jitsu is an amazing place to learn your basics in self defence and jiu jitsu. I came across Professor Gregg’s classes recommended by a friend and I have learned so much in a span of 1 month. Learning this art has also helped me in other facets of my life. If your thinking of joining or even want to take a few classes, I definitely recommend it. Oss! 🥋
If u want To train nice BJJ, that's the place!
Gregg is a great person who is genuine about his philosophy and approach towards coaching BJJ. He is also a great ambassador and representative of the local BJJ community. Everyone I know has nothing but positive things to say about Professor Gregg King and his school.
Great school for all levels of BJJ practitioners. Gregg King is one of the nicest guys in Jiu Jitsu and his students are all beasts.
King Jiu-Jitsu provides a training environment that reflects Gregg's personal philosophy on BJJ: Train hard and the lamb becomes the lion. Gregg trains champions and changes lives with his mixed approach that combines traditional self-defense curriculum with the most relevant techniques in the modern sport jiu-jitsu game. Students under his tutelage are equipped to defend themselves and the people they love, and compete at the highest levels of sport BJJ and MMA. More importantly, they learn the values of bravery, confidence and resiliency during his classes, which incorporate strength training, conditioning drills, detailed instruction and live sparring. Gregg invests heavily in new students and his welcoming approach has made KJJ a family club where everyone can feel at home. I would recommend this club & team to anyone who wants to get started in BJJ.
I love the atmosphere and the technical instruction Professor Greg King teaches. I highly recommend this gym for all levels of people wanting to learn BJJ. One thing that differentiates this gym from others is that they teach classic BJJ self defense as well, where alot of other gym's only teach the sport aspect.
Safe and fun environment. You can find both sport and self-defense Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Professor Gregg is always prone to listen to students and make classes better. He constantly brings new techniques to the table and often invites high-level faixa pretas (black belts) to help build up practitioners arsenal.
