What is JiuJitsu?

Modern-day jiujitsu is both a martial art and a combat sport with an emphasis on grappling and ground fighting. Here at Summit we take a hybrid approach to jiujitsu, where we maintain the foundational roots of the martial art while incorporating the more evolved techniques and aspects of the sport.

One of the main principles of JiuJitsu is leverage. This means that anyone, regardless of age, size, or strength not only can participate, but also effectively learn how to protect themselves.

In addition to the self-defense skills that JiuJitsu develops, it's also an amazing physical and mental challenge. That is why it's become a lifelong hobby for so many.
