Adult BJJ

Checkmat Phoenix Adult BJJ


Our biggest pet peeve? When schools work so hard to train amazing martial artists, but forget to teach their students how to apply these skills to real-life situations. At Checkmat Phoenix, self-defense and martial arts training go hand in hand. Though the application of self-defense is at the core of every class we teach, our No-Gi Jiu Jitsu course prepares students like no other. No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is unique because it ditches the martial arts uniform we’ve all become accustomed to and replaces it with regular gym clothes. The goal of this isn’t to keep students comfortable – it’s all about mimicking real-life altercations. While everyone has a different take, we feel that the grappling of No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is more realistic than any other form of martial arts. Without the grip of a kimono, the extra time to decide your next mood, or as many complex techniques, you’re gaining an experience that is way more similar to any altercation you may be confronted with outside of our gym.


With such a fast pace, you’ll be burning tons of calories while practicing No-Gi Jiu Jitsu. While BJJ is likely to help you shed a few pounds, it’s going to make you a stronger athlete in every respect. Jiu Jitsu is known for increasing flexibility, building muscle mass, quickening reflexes, and improving coordination. If you’re a multi-sport athlete, No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is about to become your best friend.
