Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a unique art of ground fighting that utilizes grappling, chokes, joint locks and other submissions. Blue Springs Jiu-jitsu offers one of the most comprehensive BJJ programs in the Kansas City area.
"Jiu-jitsu" translates to "gentle art", meaning that a practitioner will use technique and leverage to defeat their opponent. Today, jiu-jitsu remains one of the most effective and practical martial arts in the world. We teach you to become technicians on the mat by using your wits and fighting spirit, not just brawn.
Judo is a martial art that was derived directly from Japanese Jujitsu. It was founded by Dr. Jigoro Kano in 1882. This art focuses on throwing and grappling techniques with its principals being to utilize maximum efficiency and mutual benefit and welfare. Dr. Kano created this art as a sport that would allow practitioners to practice in a fun way and perfect their skills in competition. From a world wide perspective, judo is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is a required class in Japanese schools and its popularity throughout Europe is tremendous. In 1964, judo was included in the Olympic games and still is to this day. Our school offers judo programs for both Youth and Adults.
