Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Our curriculum includes classes where you practice and learn in the gi and classes without it, or "nogi" (referred to as submission grappling). The classes are still organized by level and the nogi classes will be designated as such on the schedule. Every new student at Soul Fighters HQ / AT academy receives a orientation lesson as part of the basics program, it will be customized for your experience level. 


FUNDAMENTAL

Starting any new sport, much less a martial arts, can be difficult. Our fundamental program allows you to learn basics in a very controlled, safe and fun environment. The structured curriculum is designed to effectively introduce all the basics positions, techniques, submissions and escapes. The classes will prepare you for both self-defense and sport Jiu-Jitsu. It will also improve your fitness, balance and coordination. The fundamental program is designed to anyone, male or female, of any body type, fitness level or age (14 or older).

The classes lays the foundation of knowledge upon which everything else will build. One of the biggest shortcomings of many Jiu-Jitsu academies is a lack of such comprehensive system. Our system is designed by the Soul Fighters Co-founder and World Champion Augusto Tanquinho and is unique. As evidenced in his career as one of the best featherweight of all times in Jiu-Jitsu and also the results of many champions that he helped to build in these 20 years teaching. The system works, and the fundamentals foundation allows you to reach your maximum potential in the sport. 


INTERMEDIATE

Designed for those who have completed the fundamentals curriculum and/or have attained at least a 1st degree white belt, the Intermediate curriculum will prepare you to get the blue belt, begin sparring with high belts and participate of Advanced classes. Your progress is systematic fashion to improve your understanding reflexes, and overall development in the sport. Once again this is part of our unique system that has produced many Jiu-Jitsu champions. While the Intermediate class was designed with the white belts in mind, it is also very beneficial for more advanced technique or people who may returning from a layoff.


ADVANCED

​Designed to people who have completed the Fundamental & Intermediate curriculum and/or have attained at least their 4th degree white belt, the Advanced class is for students wanting to evolve their Jiu-Jitsu to the more advanced belts, compete, or test their abilities in the most practical setting. In this class, the whole world of Jiu-Jitsu, from simple to complex, is an open book to be studied, evaluated, drilled, and put into practice. This is the class where champions are made and fitness goals are exceeded. This class includes more complex positional study and more intense sparring.


KIDS MARTIAL ARTS 

​Learning a martial art, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in particular, is one of the best gifts you­ can provide a child. It provides character development and personal growth that will impact every area of their life, for the rest of their life. It is a fun way for kids to get into fantastic shape, gain confidence, learn respect, improve discipline, and prevent bullying.

Our kids program operates in a fun and nurturing environment, where kids flourish and learn important life lessons like:

  •  Through self-discipline, commitment, and perseverance, you can accomplish anything.
  • Improving focus and concentration helps you ignore distractions and fully engage in lessons at school, in sport, and at home.
  • Patience pays off.
  • When you are healthy and fit, you feel better about yourself and are more confident.


Bullying
Our Kids Program will also empower your kids to prevent or discourage bullying without violence. Through appropriate and effective self-defense techniques, we instill the self-esteem and confidence needed to allow kids to defuse confrontations before they escalate, and how to protect and defend themselves in the event they are attacked. Bullying is the #1 social issue and epidemic in schools today, and it has ripple effects throughout our communities.

  • Every 7 minutes a child is bullied in the US
  • Every month, 3 million children miss school due to fear of bullying
  • 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying
  • 1 out of 10 students drop out of school due to repeated bullying
  • 70% of students believe schools respond poorly to bullying and that adult help is infrequent


Don’t let your child be a victim!

Why is the core of our program based in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

It does not rely on strength or size, so is effective against larger and stronger attackers,
It is safe because it’s focused on restraint and control rather than striking, and
It is considered the most practical and effective self-defense system in the world.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the martial art used in “Bully-Proofing” programs that have been praised by Oprah, CNN, and parents worldwide.

Our kids program is based on a structured curriculum, developed by 5-time World Champion Augusto Tanquinho, which is age specific and battle-tested. It includes techniques, games, drills, and live sparring.

Classes are separated by age:

Ages 4-7 – Little Soul Fighters
Ages 8-13 – Youth Soul Fighters
Ages 14+ can join the regular classes (fundamentals, intermediate, or advanced depending on their belt level)
