Welcome!  We are a martial arts academy dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our members.  We are committed to offering innovative Brazilian Jiu Jitsu programs tailored to the needs, goals and experience level of each student. With classes for both adults and children, beginners and advanced practitioners, we offer something for everyone.

 

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques.  The aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics.   With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking.

Youth Program:

 

At the Marcelo Garcia Jiu Jitsu Association of Gainesville, we are committed to providing the highest level of martial arts instruction for your children (ages 4 to 13 years old) in an enjoyable and supportive environment.

 

Under the personalized guidance of our professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors, your child will learn more than martial arts. He or she will learn balance, coordination, and fine-tune their motor skills in ways that will help them in any athletic or physical discipline they may choose later in life.  Additionally, our instructors work diligently to reinforce important life skills such as hard work, dedication, confidence, discipline, teamwork, and respect to your children.

 

 

When you enroll your child, you are giving them a gift which will benefit them forever, including:

 

  • Grade Improvement
  • Leadership Skills
  • Resistance to Peer Pressure
  • Safeguard Against Bullying
  • Increased Physical Aptitude and Fitness

The safety of our students is the overriding priority of the Marcelo Garcia Jiu Jitsu Academy of Gainesville (the "Academy") as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to pose a threat to public health.  To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our students, we are conducting a simple screening questionnaire.  The completion of this is mandatory as an important precautionary measure to protect you and the other students.  The information provided in this form will not be shared or used for any purpose other than screening related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

By clicking below, I affirm that I have not been within 6 feet of a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 for at least 5 minutes, in the past 14 days.

 

-and-

 

I affirm that in the last 48 hours,  I have not experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory illness, difficulty breathing, loss of smell and taste, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

 

I affirm that my answers to these questions are accurate and truthful.  I also agree that the Academy may use a touchless thermometer to test my body temperature and may deny access based on those results.  I also agree that, I will immediately notify the Academy if my responses to any of these questions change at any time in the future.

 

Further, I acknowledge that participating in the sport of Jiu Jitsu unavoidably involves close physical contact with other persons and that close physical contact may be conducive for the transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus.  I acknowledge that despite the sanitation and screening practices of the Academy, I may contract the COVID-19 coronavirus by entering the Academy.  I knowingly assume all risk relating to contracting COVID-19 at the Academy and release the Academy and its owners individually from any and all claims relating to contracting the COVID-19 coronavirus at the Academy.
