Group Classes:

Legion Students may attend unlimited classes at any Legion Jiu Jitsu / CheckMat location!

We offer classes for every age and skill level. Our adult classes are appropriate for all skill and experience levels. BJJ Fundamentals focuses on exploring the principles and key movements that form the foundation of Jiu Jitsu. BJJ Competition Class is appropriate for all athletes; however, it is faster paced and it is recommended for those possessing at least 2 stripes on their white belt.

Private Lessons:

Private Coaching is available for Jiu Jitsu, Self-Defense, Striking, and MMA. Despite group classes being the the standard to advance and sharpen one’s Jiu-Jitsu skills, private lessons can be a great way to supplement your training and get the opportunity to work with your Coach or Professor on specific situations, techniques, and address the unique needs of your “game”.
