SCHOOL Brazilian

Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing


SCHOOL Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides the Arcadia, Pasadena, Duarte, Monrovia, Temple City, San Gabriel, El Monte and surrounding communities with a safe place to learn proven self defense and get in great shape.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered by many to be the most practical self-defense martial art, and the one best suited particularly for children, women, and anyone who needs to overcome a size and/or strength disadvantage while defending him- or herself.







I definitely recommend this studio for anyone interested in learning Martial arts/self defense or even wanting to get stronger and change your workout routine.  Very lucky and blessed to be a part of this studio!


As a newcomer, I was extremely nervous since I didn't know anyone and had never trained BJJ before. The anxiety quickly disappeared because everyone was so kind and helpful. Professor Ben was and still is very patient and meticulous in his classes and also stays after class to help students improve. I was so happy with my experience that I never visited another gym and signed up ASAP.


Great place for training my daughters been coming here for a few months now. Coaches are highly skilled. Great facility great prices and awesome coaches treat you like family.
