Blue Dog Jiu-Jitsu, is a small independent Jiu-Jitsu club. We believe that everyone is equal and encourage training, with other clubs and styles, regardless of affiliation.
Blue Dog JJ is a proud member of BJJ Globetrotters and welcomes any fellow member travellers, with open arms and a week of free training, while they are in town. We give our students the freedom to wear any Gi they want, with any patches they want. Our goal is to provide quality instruction: in a fun, happy and safe environment, at an affordable price.

You will learn and understand the basics of distance management and leverage made famous by the Gracie family. Jiu-Jitsu is tried and tested and is also an integral part of MMA.
Jiu-Jitsu, through adaptation and innovation, has become a combat sport: with governing bodies, strict rules and regular competitions, both locally and internationally. There will be sparring, or "rolling", at the end of every class. There are no strikes in sport Jiu-Jitsu, which makes sparring much safer.
No Gi Jiu-Jitsu: the same as sport Jiu-Jitsu, but without the Gi (Jiu-Jitsu suit).
