Who We Are

Black Sails Jiu Jitsu is a modern school and a haven for all practitioners. Whether you want to compete, locally or abroad, learn self defense, or just stay active while in good company, you are welcome here. We are a group of like-minded individuals with a shared love of the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Our goal is to foster a space that allows the safe, self-expression of the art, while in good company. Our founders started Black Sails purely for love of the art. We needed a home and when we couldn’t find what we were looking for elsewhere, we decided to make our own.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling based martial art focused on controlling and submitting a resisting opponent utilizing technical mastery and the fewest physical attributes required. From the feet to the floor, the art places emphasis on bringing the opponent to the ground, establishing control through dominant positioning,  and forcing a submission utilizing chokeholds or jointlocks. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides the practitioner with a unique avenue for improving athletic ability, developing technical expertise, and honing problem-solving skills in a socially enriching environment.
