About Us:

Martial arts training is a complete package of self-improvement for mind and body. You’ll notice many physical improvements thanks to the workout provided by Jiu Jitsu classes. But there’s no reason to be intimidated by grappling because it doesn’t rely solely on strength. Jiu Jitsu is about leverage and problem-solving. Even if you struggle, Checkmat Phoenix takes time to offer personal help and instill resilience.

Checkmat Phoenix’s team of instructors is made entirely of black belts that are devoted to our students. We take individualized approaches to training, so competitive champions or casual martial artists can develop their skills. Regardless of your goal, we work to build a strong foundation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques. People of all ages, genders and walks of life will be well-equipped with self-defense skills to protect themselves. You’ll discover a more peaceful life after taking Checkmat Phoenix Jiu Jitsu classes.

Our History:

Karen Antunes established Checkmat Phoenix in 2019 to share Jiu Jitsu with the community. It was a chance to gain freedom from other academies and work independently. Now associated with the Checkmat Association, Karen strives to teach Jiu Jitsu to as many people as possible and share its benefits.

The Checkmat Association strives to share a healthier lifestyle through teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes. A passion to create a BJJ team has grown into an international affiliation with over 200 schools. Our core values of family, positivity, and excellence has created a worldwide family of martial artists since 2008.
