- $64 for four weeks of unlimited Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes in Menlo Park ($125 value)
Brazilian jujitsu classes don’t just increase physical strength and stamina—they also teach practical self-defense techniques. Brazilian jujitsu’s grappling techniques, such as mounts and joint locks, are designed to help fighters overtake opponents of virtually any size—making it a great discipline for men, women, and teens. A modified version of traditional Japanese jujitsu and judo, Brazilian jujitsu demands that fighters stay close to the ground, incorporating timing and leverage to take advantage of faster, stronger opponents.
