Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

During the first Ultimate Fighting Championship on November 12, 1993, Royce Gracie single-handedly popularized Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by dominating the tournament with his superior ground fighting and grappling techniques.  Ever since then, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been recognized as one of the most notable and effective fighting styles for competitive sport, mixed martial arts, and even self-defense.

A Description of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Rather than relying on size and robusticity, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu utilizes leverage and proper technique on the ground or mat to create an advantageous position, where the practitioner can then apply either a joint-lock or a chokehold to finish the engagement.  Many styles are chaotic, flailing with standing arm and leg strikes, but a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter nullifies these unpredictable attacks by luring the opponent to the ground.  Here, they can institute a dominant position and control the fight against a defenseless opponent by remaining on top.  Therefore, for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu contender, position is everything.

" Very awesome gym. They provide instructions in English as well. Very open to non-Dutch people, and definitely safe for beginners and women as well. There is zero politics here and the atmosphere feels like family. It is definitely a very good return of my investment here, as over one year I have become much better athletically, stronger, faster and more confident in myself. I cannot recommend a better gym to start your martial arts journey "

" Ondertussen train ik bijna een jaar bij Elevation Sports. Vanaf het begin heb ik mij direct erg welkom gevoeld en de mensen zijn erg vriendelijk. Er wordt hard getraind maar ook zeker veel gelachen. De trainers zijn capabel, geduldig en behulpzaam als je vragen hebt.  Al met al ben ik erg blij dat ik de stap heb gezet om eens een proefles te proberen want één les smaakt naar meer! "

" Great gym with a fantastic culture. Amazing environment to train BJJ and learn so much more along the way! "
Thommy Timmermans

" I trained there for almost a year now, and I highly recommend Elevation Sports. There are many classes held by different instructors allowing the study of Jiu-Jitsu under its many aspects: gi, no gi, fundamentals, advanced techniques, leg logs, take downs and all you need to learn. The scheduled is flexible, offering classes and open mats  all week. The group is large and varied, but the psychology across all the people is healthy, making Elevation Sports a very happy environment while still being competitive and challenging. There is also always someone up for competitions. The facility is large and can host easily big groups. The mats are extremely clean and taken care on daily basis (by experience, not such a given). Showers and changing rooms are comfortable and extremely clean too. "
