Brazilian Jiu jitsu in Connecticut

The art that revolutionized combat sports!


MMA took the world by storm, but in 1993 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu dominated every competitor with ease. Fast forward to today and EVERY athlete has Jiu Jitsu integrated into his skill set. Most UFC champions are black belts!

Our team of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts have been involved in the art for 20+ years. We teach a very technical style and have produced a number of impressive competitors.

Beginners learn self-defense-oriented techniques to help a smaller, weaker person defeat a larger, more athletic, and more aggressive opponent. As you advance through the ranks, you will also learn several Judo throws, hundreds of submissions, and an incredible array of sweeps, escapes, and techniques to control your opponent.

Not only are grappling classes great fun, they are an amazing workout. Many people who can't stand traditional fitness activities, or sports in general, find grappling to be an incredibly immersive mental exercise that has the added bonus of being an incredible workout.



1. Will I be able to keep up?

Yes, all of our classes are designed with a progressive development philosophy. You will be grouped with people who will help you grow, not hinder you, and you will be taught techniques that you can handle at your level.


2. Do I have to compete?

Absolutely not; the majority of people train for fun or fitness, not to compete. In our experience, most people will end up competing at least once when they are ready.


3. Do I have to buy gear?

Eventually yes. But until then [such as during your trial], we have gear for you to take class with. Once you decide to buy your own gear, you will find the cost to be a minimal investment.

Members from across Connecticut train with us! We’re just a short drive from North Haven, HamdenMeriden, Durham, Southington, Middletown, and Cromwell. Contact us today to get started!

As a Jiu Jitsu Cheshire CT Practitioner, You’ll Boost Mindfulness

It's no secret that jiu jistu takes physical endurance and strength, but mindfulness is also crucial for this martial art. For example, every technique demands the complete attention of the practitioner. This total attention is so that the practitioner can stay attuned to their opponent's actions while deciding on their responses. At its core, jiu jitsu requires a deep sense of presence and awareness. Our jiu jitsu students can attest that when practicing, distractions fade away, and they enter into a mindful flow state. 

Our jiu jitsu classes here at Performance Combat provide a transformative journey, where the art of jiu jitsu transcends mere combat—it's a gateway to mindfulness and personal growth. Much like meditation, our sessions demand unwavering present-moment focus and the seamless unity of mind and body. Join us and explore how the parallels between Jiu-Jitsu and meditation can enrich not only your physical prowess but also your inner harmony and well-being.
