John Wai Kung Fu Academy is by far the best place around for studying Martial Arts. Kids and adults alike can learn a variety of forms such as Kung Fu, Sanshou, and jiujitsu. Best of all John Wai's staff members are knowledgeable, friendly, and 100 % professional! My whole family attends John Wai Kung Fu Academy and we are more well-rounded, happier, healthier, and stronger because of it. If your on the fence, hop off and walk into JWKFA; you'll be happy you did!

I don't write reviews often, but I just wanted to make it known how great this school is. My 6 year old daughter has been taking Kung fu classes here for about a month now. She absolutely LOVES it. All of the instructors are impressively both talented and incredible at their art, while always going above and beyond to make it a fun and enjoyable class for the students. I love watching the children learn while having a great time. They build confidence, discipline and an early appreciation for martial arts. I really can't say enough about this wonderful place.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

BJJ is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, BJJ is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying BJJ can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

BJJ Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

BJJ provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, BJJ students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

BJJ Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but BJJ is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, BJJ helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, BJJ builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

BJJ Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying BJJ gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

BJJ Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love BJJ because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

BJJ requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

BJJ competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

FAQs

Do I need to know jiu-jitsu or Judo to study BJJ?

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study BJJ have no prior martial arts training.

Is there a belt system in BJJ?

Yes. Students work their way through five belt levels: white, blue, purple, brown, and black. Each belt has four stripes to help students monitor their progress – and once you earn a black belt, you can proceed to new levels based on how long you have been studying BJJ.

Do I need any special equipment to study Brazilian Martial Arts?

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for male students to wear a cup, and some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

As a beginner, do I need to spar?

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Can BJJ help me defend myself?

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.

Will taking BJJ classes help me lose weight?

It can, particularly if you combine BJJ classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. BJJ provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.

More Benefits
