Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

We offer the Best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program in Silverdale, Bremerton, and the surrounding areas.

Defined as a martial art form that teaches a smaller, weaker opponent to defeat a bigger, stronger opponent by use of technique, leverage, and joint manipulation such as chokes, arm-locks, etc. Made famous in the U.S. by Royce Gracie with his early dominance in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). Martial artists and regular people alike started to seek out the few Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academies that existed at the time and learn these valuable skills for self-defense. Now Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world. Whether it’s for wellness, fitness, self-defense, confidence or competition, we offer the best programs to suit your needs.

Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not like going to the gym, a student must have quality instruction, a respectful environment and a dedicated group of students. A quality Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy, like Virtuous Grappling, is all about the environment and culture, all of which starts with our head instructor, Shawn Gaspaire, and our owner Cody Smith who are always present to teach the students, mentor them and provide the support to make a great environment.
