We are a family that is dedicated to bringing all of the positivity, structure, and benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to South Georgia.
Coach Scott Ferguson started his journey in 2010 and quickly realized that applying the principles of this art to everyday life would improve every aspect of his world. This lead him to open 2 Jiu-Jitsu Academies in South Georgia based on one simple idea: Everything Is Better With Jiu-Jitsu.
The hardest part is walking through the door. But rest assured, when you do, you will be walking through the door to new friends, teachers and experiences that will last a lifetime.
There is no better form of community and team building than having a common pursuit involving great adversity and helping each other to overcome that using skills you’ve learned together.
We teach respect for yourself and for those around you. These are the building blocks of what it takes to be successful not only in Jiu-Jitsu, but in life.
Our classes include students from all walks of life, who would have otherwise probably never met, and now share a common bond – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We encourage visitors to come and watch classes and get a feel for who we are and what we do.
I have only trained here as a drop-in (from an out-of-town Gracie Jiu-Jitsu school), but all the concerns I have when visiting other Jiu-Jitsu gyms or open-mats are non-existent here. The instruction is excellent, bar-none; and most importantly, the culture is safe, hygienic, and conducive to learning.
Hands down the best time I have ever had learning bjj and self defense. Scott has a way of teaching simple techniques with a high success rate that just work. Most are not glamorous nor do they have a catchy name, but they just work when you’re getting handled by a larger and even more experienced opponent.
