We believe that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a tool to achieve individual development and personal growth. Each class is developed to challenge students to excel and fulfill their highest potential physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our world-class instruction and curriculum incorporates physical conditioning and strategic understanding of the techniques. Each class is structured to teach technique aimed to improve strength, flexibility, speed, and overall body mechanics While also developing self-awareness, discipline, and confidence.
Team Passos offers outstanding martial arts instruction for children beginning at age 6 up to 14. There are different groups based on their age and skill level. After age 14 they graduate to the adult class.
The program is structured to teach technique through functional games aimed to improve your child’s agility and flexibility in a fun, friendly and interactive manner. Strength, self-awareness, respect, assertiveness, discipline, and responsibility are core values taught within our kids program.
Professor Tony Passos and the rest of the team lovingly refer to the children’s program as “zoo-jitsu.” Many of the kids have picked their own “animal name” while they are on the mats.
Our kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is a safe and fun way to get kids active and teach them problem solving skills that will help them to achieve their goal throughout their lives. We work closely with our students and their parents to set both short term and long term goals and continually work towards achieving those goals. Our curriculum teaches Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques, facilitates the development and refinement of your child’s motor skills, and provides exercise to increase power, speed, and flexibility. In addition to learning practical techniques, all instruction includes character development. Each class connects the techniques learned to specific values: honesty, self-motivation, self-respect, respect for others, teamwork, discipline, healthy living, self-control, and of course how to have fun.
Our instructors carry with them a lifetime of martial arts experience to create a fun, friendly atmosphere for your children. The kids program is scheduled during after school hours and is finished in time to allow time for homework when you get home, or time for mom or dad to train as well. Our kids class schedule is from 5:00-6:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays.

Our Adults Fundamentals program is designed for students new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. These classes follow a structured curriculum that is essential to a beginner’s progression in Jiu Jitsu. Fundamental techniques and concepts are taught in a controlled setting in order to ensure that students effectively learn the basic foundation that will build onto the next level of their Jiu Jitsu progression.
Each class begins with a basic warm up that involves deliberate movements and positions which will enable the beginner to become proficient in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After a brief warm-up, the class covers specific Jiu Jitsu techniques/positional training where step-by-step instruction is given. This is then followed by controlled drilling of the techniques taught in order to develop muscle memory where executing the techniques becomes second nature. Each class ends with sparring/rolling where the student will implement what they have learned.
Our Fundamentals program will help the novice Jiu Jitsu enthusiast, regardless of fitness level or age, gain a solid foundation and transition smoothly along their BJJ journey. To schedule your orientation contact us here!
Our intermediate program is designed for people who have completed the fundamental curriculum and are ready to advanced in their BJJ training. The curriculum will build upon the fundamentals curriculum while preparing the student to progress to the advanced program.
The Advanced class is designed for the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu student who has acquired a solid foundation of the sport and who would like to progress their Jiu Jitsu to the next level. The focus of this class is to learn how to combine basic and complex techniques into a comprehensive strategy. The Advanced class is guaranteed to excel your Jiu Jitsu to the next level and enhance the training experience.
In addition to the daily group training environment, private instruction is also available. While group classes are foundational to Jiu Jitsu training, largely because of the diversity of training partners, private lessons can complement the learning process and provide specialized attention to address certain areas of need. The benefits of private lessons include scheduling flexibility, personal attention, and linear presentation of techniques.
Private classes are taught by Tony Passos or one of our specially trained instructors. The individual attention received during private lessons will provide you world class training while ensuring each position is done with the utmost precision and focus on detail.
