Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Global MMA Academy
BJJ is a game of physical chess. Fitness, strategy, fun, and self defense are all wrapped up in this dynamic martial art. This is a close-quarters style to train, which results in a close-knit community.
We are Gainesville's oldest Brazilian jiu jitsu school. In fact, many instructors in Gainesville got their start with Global BJJ. Sensei Jason Dodd (Relson Gracie black belt) is the head coach at our academy, bringing more than 20 years of experience to the mat. Our BJJ program is affiliated with Robert Drysdale and Zenith BJJ, and we have an active competition team.
