Our Academy

We are a private, for members only, Academy and are now forming classes and accepting new membership applications.  


We offer children and adult's programs that gives you the feeling and benefit of small group classes.  We also offer private classes in BJJ and/or Self-Defense.

About Us

We offer fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Self-Defense programs and private classes in basic BJJ for beginners in a relaxed, safe, controlled, fun, and recreational environment designed for students (ages 8 and up) to work as a group to achieve the healthy balance of fitness, the discipline of martial arts training, respect, camaraderie, and overall mental and physical well being.

Our Instructor

Our instructor is William Dias, a third degree BJJ black belt with over 24 years of practice and teaching experience.  William is also a Tactix certified instructor and an ISSA certified Personal fitness trainer.  He is CPR certified and works as a Martial Arts and Fitness trainer and advisor at Silicon Valley Mountain View YMCA, Apple, and Menlo School.

Classes Suspended Until Further Notice
