The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Journey requires the Never Quit Attitude

The mindset of a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner is one of resilience.  The idea that if you quit once, it becomes a habit.  So as students of the Art of BJJ, we practice the toughness it takes to overcome daily obstacles and any adversity that may come our way.


Path to the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt


Practitioners in the Art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu work hard to stay on the path of advancement.  It takes many thousands of hours and years of training and dedication to gain the skills and the performance of a BJJ Black Belt.

Congratulations Ray Sloan on being awarded the coveted Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt!

From Day one of training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students are taught the basics and fundamentals of BJJ.  But ask just about any BJJ Black Belt what they are working on in their game, and most will tell you, they are working on and refining what they know of the ‘Basics’.

Friendships and Bonds are made through the daily grind of constant improvement.
