Duty, Honor, and Respect

At Warriors for Christ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy our goal is to share the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a welcoming and family-oriented environment. Most importantly, we strive to teach our students the meaning of duty, honor, and respect on and off the mats. We want to create an environment where everyone can come together to fellowship and build genuine relationships with one another. Through this, our Christian community will then strive to reach out to others for Christ through the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
