Welcome to the Chattanooga Jiu-Jitsu Academy

Welcome to the official web site of Chattanooga Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Established in 2002 the Chattanooga Jiu-Jitsu Academy is Chattanooga’s premier self-defense martial arts academy exclusively dedicated to the teaching of Gracie Jiu Jitsu technique and philosophy as developed by its founder the late Grand Master Helio Gracie. We believe that this system of jiu jitsu is an incredible means of developing self-defense, physical fitness, and a multitude of positive life style benefits.

Our Mission

To teach the most proven and practical martial arts in the world in a positive, friendly, high energy, family environment. We want each and every student to be able to defend themselves in a real world attack regardless of size, strength, age or athletic ability. While many martial arts are developed for sportive competition we recognize that in a real fight there are no referees, no points, no time limits and no weight divisions.

The Academy

The Chattanooga Jiu-Jitsu Academy located in Hixson TN boasts a brand new 5000 square foot facility. The academy is run daily by true black belt experts and a professional staff. We pride ourselves on having a super clean training environment and therefore clean and disinfect the entire school daily. The Chattanooga Jiu-Jitsu Academy has a diverse range of students from business professionals to competitive Mixed Martial Arts fighters.

Why Gracie Jiu Jitsu?

The fact is that most self-defense situations happen as a surprise, involve a larger attacker, quickly move to a very close range and eventually end up on the ground. Gracie Jiu Jitsu is the only martial arts system that has proven it self effective over and over with regard to these four criteria. Demonstrated to be so effective in the original Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), it is the official and only martial art used in the U.S. Army Combatives program. Read more
