Being able to protect yourself is more important now than ever. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives you the ability to protect yourself if and when the fight goes to the ground. 

Our program will train you to be comfortable fighting from the ground and will give you confidence. You will excel where your attackers will have no clue. Some of the topics we cover include takedowns, sweeps, escapes, control positions, and submissions.

We have a great team of instructors here in Carmel including 2nd degree Brazilian Jiujitsu black belt Marcus Clancy.  He has a passion for all things martial arts.  Marcus also holds a 6th degree black belt in TKD, 20 years of boxing experience, and a Green belt in Judo.

Our 2nd instructor, John Adamson was born into a martial arts family including kickboxers, boxers, and of course karate athletes.  He started his ground-fighting experience with Folk Style Wrestling where he was the captain of his high school wrestling team.  He then went on to compete around the world in karate tournaments and holds a 6th degree black belt in karate.  He also studied Filipino ground fighting, and the Russian Special Forces art of Systema.  He currently holds the rank of blue belt in BJJ.

For those looking to take their Jiu-Jitsu training to the highest levels, you should know that the BJJ Coach network is all over Indianapolis and has many black belts in and around the city.  We are like one big family.  Our head instructor Marcello Montiero teaches out of the Beech Grove location.  He is a 5th degree Brazilian Jiujitsu Black Belt from Brazil and our testing is done under his watchful eye.
