Our Freestyle Jiu Jitsu classes at Beach Cities Martial Arts combine the techniques of classical Japanese jujutsu, judo, sambo, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We feel that this mix gives a complete overview of grappling skills over any one style.

FJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi). Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance.
