American Fight Club’s experienced instructors guide students of all skill levels in a variety of judo and Brazilian jujitsu classes six days a week, including introductory Level 1 courses on Monday–Thursday evenings. Students assemble on a sea of soft red mats as teachers guide them through exercises in body control, leverage, and submission moves to stop opponents from tickling. A graduate of the prestigious Machado Academy, founder Joe Savoian brings a wealth of training and competitive experience to the education of aspiring leg-lockers, and also oversees an American Fight Club satellite campus in Alabama. Students can focus their training toward preparing for local competitions, and earn brownie points for lowering Joe’s carbon footprint by hip-tossing him from one AFC location to another.
American Fight Club Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Instructors at American Fight Club Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teach judo and jiu jitsu fundamentals designed to win fights, not just look cool. Co-founders Cody Ingles and Joe Savoian bring more than 30 years' combined martial arts experience to the school, and one judo and one jiu jitsu black belt, respectively, so it's safe to say they take their work seriously. New students should expect to train hard in the 1.5-hour classes, whether they're there to join a competition team or just to have fun and get in shape. After the introductory class for beginners, classes are all-level, so that students can learn from their peers.
