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.

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.
