Real World Self-Defense Training

Do you want to learn how to TRULY defend yourself?

We’ve developed a self-defense system that is easy for anyone to use. Our techniques are based on the natural movements of your body, so they are simple and effective. They also follow two guidelines called “energy efficiency” and “natural body movements” that favor students of all ages, levels of fitness, and require no previous experience. You will develop confidence in these situations: Against a striking opponent in a real fight; Defending against a larger opponent without relying on strength or speed; Not relying on awkward or uncomfortable positions that could place you off balance or within knockout distance.

Don’t wait another day! Sign up today and fast forward your progression! We’ll show you how we can help you feel more confident in any situation where your safety may be at risk. It’s time for YOU to take control of YOUR life again!

Real World Defense Facts

Our Self Defense Program builds a foundation on grappling and ground defense..

10% Increase in Aggravated Assaults' from 2019 to 2020 in US

According to FBI reported crime statistics, in 2020 the U.S. saw an aggravated assault occur every 40 seconds totaling 279.7 cases per 100,000 of the population (and that's just whats reported)

Even more frequent home burglaries and home invasions

Fundamentals of Self-Defense Program

Your selfdefense journey at Granite Bay Jiu-Jitsu starts with 50 small group classes.  Here you will learn the 36 techniques grouped into 23 classes, cycled through at least twice.  Every technique is broken down into great detail covering a variety of scenarios with an emphasis on precision, control and patience (slow is smooth and smooth is fast).  Energy efficiency, survival and leverage will be the focus during this period with reflex development drills that allow you to practice the “technique flow” in a non-competitive environment.

As you cycle through the classes a second time, you will have the opportunity to participate in Fight Simulation Drills where the “attacker” wears boxing gloves to simulate strikes and punches.

We believe this approach will most efficiently build your confidence and competence as you prepare to continue your journey towards learning more advanced techniques and live sparring.
