Why Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is regarded as one of the most effective self-defense martial arts ever developed. The focus is on fighting on the ground, and using leverage and technique in a manner that allows a smaller, weaker individual to overwhelm a larger, stronger assailant.

The instructors and programs at Kraken Jiu-Jitsu are centered on promoting self-defense, self-awareness, and self-confidence, with our highest values being honor, integrity, self-discipline, and humility. We believe in creating and cultivating a positive, safe environment where anyone can begin their Jiu-Jitsu journey, regardless of their athletic ability, age, or previous experience.

We cordially invite you to come try out a class to see if we’re a good fit for you.

Your first class is complementary and is provided at no cost to you. Your only regret will be that you didn’t start sooner!

Testimonials

“Joining Kraken has Been a Humbling Experience and I Only Wish I Would have Made the Decision to Start Sooner.”

“For years I put off starting jiu jitsu for a couple of reasons. Around October, 2020, a friend of mine told me that I should come train at Kraken. I knew nothing about Kraken. He told me that the instructor was very knowledgeable and was very supportive of law enforcement/military. I was told that I could come try a week for free to see if it was something I would be interested in. Being in law enforcement and knowing that most altercations end up on the ground, I knew that I needed to stop making excuses as to why I couldn’t join a jiu jitsu gym. I decided to stop making excuses and give it a shot. I couldn’t be more pleased with the decision I finally made. Since starting at Kraken I have gotten in much better shape, I have become more confident in myself and I have developed so many good friendships. I have been extremely impressed with the wealth of knowledge Instructor Mattson has and how he strives to pass it on to each and every one of his students. Not only does he strive to make us better at jiu jitsu, he strives to make us better as human beings. That’s the kind of leader everyone needs. Joining Kraken has been a humbling experience and I only wish I would have made the decision to start sooner. I am proud to be a part of the Kraken family and I look forward to seeing our family grow, so come join us.
