Able bodied

Jiu-Jitsu truly is for everyone and no more is this point made when you see people with disabilities who train. I'm quite moved when I read articles or watch videos such as the following examples. As my own instructor says: "[they] got more balls than most people I know".

Andrew Robb: BJJ student and spina bifida sufferer.



Kyle Maynard, wrestler, MMA fighter and congenital amputee


Alessandro, BJJ student, blind


No excuses.

That's awesome. We have a girl named Jordan who is blind who trains with us in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo. She represented the USA in the Paralypics.
