Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art focused on control and submission. Through a strong foundation based on positional hierarchy and body mechanics, it is designed to be the best means of gaining and maintaining control over a resisting opponent, while exposing opportunities for counter-attack.
The Columbia University Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club is one of the oldest collegiate BJJ clubs in the world. Founded in the late Nineties, it has been home to over a thousand students looking to stay safe, get in shape, and make new friends. We train up to three times a week in the Andrew F. Barth Wrestling Room in the Dodge Fitness Center. Individuals who are affiliated with Columbia University and have a Dodge Fitness Center membership are able to be a member of the club. If you want to train in BJJ or are just curious to try it, come by the Wrestling room during out practice time (club membership is required to participate). See you on the mat!
