Professor Anderson is a great instructor! He is very patient and I am amazed at how much our 9 year old son has learned from him in just a few months. Our son has some physical challenges and Professor Anderson works around them and helps him to do things in Jiu-Jitsu that I didn't think he would be able to do. Enrolling our son here has been one of the best things that we have done for him!

This is THE place to get your kids into. Professor Jeremy is OUTSTANDING with the kiddos, teaching them focus and discipline as well as life skills. My husband and I are so grateful for Professor Jeremy and all he has taught to our kiddos and will continue to do so in the future.

A month ago I walked into WJJA with my eight-year old daughter with a plan of introducing her to some sort of physical activity, as a long winter quickly approaches here in Minneapolis. I thought martial arts would be a great way for her to stay active… it was a soft sell. Just checking the place (WJJA) out, completely unannounced. Well, needless to say, what a difference a month makes. I (not my daughter) joined and if only I joined many moons ago. What a great time! Prof. Anderson and his team have really created a welcoming environment that adds up to the best workout and fellowship that money can buy. I’m 45, with zero martial arts or wrestling experience and never watched MMA. I truly can’t wait to get to class work up a great sweat, compete and learn. Hat’s off Prof. Anderson.

Professor Jeremy and his staff are great with kids. Very encouraging and good at building confidence. And based in the number of adults who appear for the next class, I'd guess he's good with them also. We drive 20+ miles round trip for each class, and WJJ is well worth it. Try it.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

Started a month and a half ago, and turned out it was the best choice. Not only you work out, but learn self defense techniques while having fun. The environment at WJJ is more than friendly. Team members help each other out and Professor explains in detail the techniques. It is an excellent place to grow mentally, socially, and physically. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Corina Timea

I’m a 40+ year old, 9-5, family guy that’s been training at WJJA 3 – 4x / week for the last 7 months. On any given day a guy like me trains with young national champion wrestlers, a world combat submission grappling champion and many larger, stronger talented guys and I have never had any fear for my safety. That is not the case in all gyms and it comes straight from Professor Anderson and filters down to everyone else in the room. He has built in our gym a strong sense of community and a real team that trains together and looks to improve each other every day through safe but intense training.

Professor Anderson has not just the qualification to teach but also the ability to transfer that knowledge in easily grasped blocks that he links together in a movement chain.

The consistent training has allowed me to see significant improvements in my flexibility, strength and overall durability. I haven’t felt this good since I was just out of college!

Cody Kending

I was a bit nervous before I entered the academy for the first time. I had no prior martial arts experience and had no idea how I would fare. Professor Anderson and the students made me feel very welcome from the start. Learning Jiu Jitsu (something completely out of my wheelhouse) has been a humbling and incredibly rewarding experience so far. Each time I go, it is one hour that completely frees my mind of any issues that might be swirling around in my noggin. It's my form of meditation. And I just received my first stripe on my white belt and cannot wait to continue my journey!

Michael Sovereign

Can’t say enough good things about this place. I was fortunate enough to train here for two weeks while in town for work. The environment was friendly, welcoming, and safe, without a hint of ego. Their programs for both kids and adults are fantastic, and the instructors are equal parts passionate and knowledgeable. If you’re in the area and have been considering trying jiu-jitsu, wait no longer - you won’t regret going to World Jiu-Jitsu Academy!

Do I need to know jiu-jitsu or Judo to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have no prior martial arts training.

Do I need any special equipment to study Brazilian Martial Arts?

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

As a beginner, do I need to spar?

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Can Brazilian Jiu Jitsu help me defend myself?

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.

Will taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes help me lose weight?

It can, particularly if you combine Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.
