Comprido Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy
At Comprido Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy, larger opponents aren't automatically awarded the upper hand. That's because Brazilian jujitsu (BJJ) levels the playing field by taking physical altercations to the ground.

Children's BJJ classes prepare kids to physically defend themselves from bullies, and promote peaceful resolution first and foremost.
