Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

95% of all Self Defense situations end up on the ground. Are you Prepared?

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu has proven that a smaller, weaker person can defend themselves effectively and efficiently against a bigger and stronger attacker. Discovered and perfected by the Gracie family on the mean streets of Rio De Janeiro. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was and is the 1st style of Martial Arts that has always tested itself and applied its techniques in the toughest and most dangerous of situations.   BJJ can claim that technique and patience can defeat size and power. Proven in the original UFC by Royce Gracie when he would consistently defeat fighters 70lbs heavier.

What Will I Learn?

  • Situational Awareness

    What is situational awareness? Let me give you some examples of what it isn’t, ever see that person walking down the street in the middle of the night on their cell phone not paying attention to their surroundings? That is a lack of situational awareness. Our BJJ classes will teach you and help you develop the ability to be vigilant but not scared. We will teach you how to address and assess situations before they become dangerous, giving the ability to avoid a potentially dangerous attacker.

  • Punch Protection

    Punch Protection is exactly what it sounds like, the ability to deal with an attacker trying to strike you and you having the ability to protect and defend those strikes effectively and efficiently.

  • Ground Protection

    95% of all Street fights and Self Defense situations wind up ion the ground according to FBI crime statistics. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the only system that effectively addresses these situations. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is designed to allow a smaller weaker opponent be able to defend themselves against a bigger, faster and stronger attacker.

Students are Saying:

Robert Palumbi

I have been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for over a decade and NJMA is one of the most reputable schools in the area for one simple reason- they offer an outstanding product no matter what your goal is. Marco Perazzo is a world class instructor who has trained fighters at the highest level, but he is also personable, knowledgeable, and articulate enough to know that most people aren't looking to become professional fighters.

A Note from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and Head Instructor Professor Marco Perazzo

Dear Future Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Student,

NJMA offers the finest in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes and instruction. With a direct lineage to the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the Gracie Family. Helio Gracie the founder proved that in Self-Defense and No Rules fighting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective Martial art. My direct lineage to Helio Gracie flows through his 2nd oldest son Relson Gracie, Relson nicknamed Campaeo Champion in english. Helio Gracie---->Relson Gracie---->Phil Migliarese (One of Relson Gracie's first Black Belts)---->Marco Perazzo. The old saying is that the water is purest closest to the source.

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes and instruction is guided by and geared towards the reality that self defense  is the main reason most people start learning the Martial Arts. Our Black Belt instructors have gone through a rigorous training and certification process to ensure that you  receive the highest quality instruction. NJMA's Brazilian Jiu-jitsu self defense curriculum is a living breathing example of Helio Gracie's work and belief that a smaller weaker person can defeat a bigger stronger more aggressive attacker. Technique conquers brute strength. Take a class to see and feel the power you can achieve through Jiu-jitsu training and technique.

I look forward to seeing you in class and starting you on the path to being able to defend yourself,

Professor Marco Perazzo
