What is Brazilian Jui-Jitsu? BJJ focuses on ground fighting with the use of clothing as a weapon. The idea is a smaller opponent can overwhelm a larger one by leverage, frames, chokeholds, and joint locks to win the fight. BJJ requires patience and focus and is like playing chess with your body.
In 2003, Brazilian Jui-Jitsu became the official form of hand-to-hand combat of the U.S. Military.
“We’re building a veteran community by partnering with the VFW and we’re in conversations with the American Legion. We want veterans to know there’s a home here in Pella for them.”
The Robbins brothers believe in giving back to the community and offer reduced rates for Veterans, law enforcement, first responders, and industrial workers.
What does success look like? In just the last 4 months Pella BJJ trained and sent four people to compete at the Sub Spectrum competition in Des Moines in January. With almost 300 competitors in all age bracket, Pella BJJ brought home 5 medals with only 4 competitors. “We definitely made a mark for Pella Brazilian Jui-Jitsu.”
