What We Do!
At Sakura BJJ, we teach our students the true essence of martial arts as we focus on training our students to become great human beings both inside and outside of the dojo. Our aim is to hone the physical and mental aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. When training at Sakura BJJ, self-defense, self-discipline and self-confidence are the three most important qualities that you will learn to embody within yourself.
Whether you are looking to simply get in shape or just learn self-defense, with us, you get to do both; it’s a package deal. Chris Civello expects every student to be committed to the program as that is the only way they will learn and benefit from the training!
If you are unsure about our academy, why not give us a visit and see for yourself. This way you can make an informed decision regarding enrolling your children and yourself too!
We are always happy to welcome you to our humble dojo!
