About Us

What we do and who we are

EIDSON BJJ teachers and staff bring you the highest quality Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction in a friendly, respectful, family environment. Whether you’re looking for discipline, fitness, sport or self-defense training, we will meet your needs. Our rotating curriculum covers all aspects of grappling, for self-defense and competition, from throws and take-downs to ground work and submissions.

Our community-based method of instruction integrates beginners into ongoing classes with advanced students. Newcomers learn not only from the class instructor, but also from more experienced students, providing a wider pool of knowledge, wisdom and technique. Advanced students, in turn, gain insight by helping beginners to progress. All classes are taught by qualified instructors. We choose our instructors based on teaching ability, technical knowledge, personal integrity, patience, and dedication to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Students also improve their quality of life through developing their focus, discipline, skill, self-confidence and physical fitness. Jiu-jitsu can provide families with a lifetime of shared memories, personal growth, and common interest.

Code of Conduct


Create and maintain a safe environment to avoid illness and injury:

  • No shoes, food, gum, drinks or phones on the mat.
  • Always wear shoes or slippers off the mat.
  • Uniforms must be clean, odor free, and free from tears and holes.
  • All metal objects, jewelry, piercings, necklaces and other items must be removed.
  • Wear a shirt or rash guard at all times.
  • Finger and toe nails must be clean and trimmed.
  • Stow your gear in the locker room or in the designated storage area.
  • Pay attention during sparring; do not sit facing away from the mat.
  • Tap timely, physically and/or verbally.
  • Workout within your physical limitations, inform all instructors of all/any health conditions.


Exhibit respect within our school amongst each other, and within the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community:

  • Bow to the center of the mat when entering and leaving the mat area.
  • Bow to your partner before and after sparring.
  • Be on time. If you are late, obtain permission from the instructor before joining class.
  • Do not talk while an instructor is demonstrating a technique. Focus and maintain an attentive posture.
  • No foul or offensive language.
  • Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Show respect for others beliefs and opinions.
  • Practice humility. It is disrespectful to celebrate during sparring with team mates.
  • The goal of sparring is to learn, not win. You do not have an opponent, you have a partner. Act accordingly. What happens on the mat stays on the mat.
  • Do not ask higher ranking students to drill or spar, it’s considered impolite. He/she will ask you. Likewise, never coach a higher ranking student.
  • Your belt represents your progress. Keep it tied correctly and neatly. Turn away when tying your belt.
  • Do not leave trash, water bottles, clothing, finger tape, etc. on or around the mat.
  • Dispose of trash appropriately.
  • Respect our school facility.
  • Always behave appropriately and with respect inside and outside the school. Your actions outside the school, especially including tournaments, reflect our values.
  • You’re a part of an extended family – take care of one another on and off the mat.


Practice discipline to demonstrate the willingness to learn and grow:

  • Come class ready to work hard and learn with a positive attitude. Don’t bring drama to the mat.
  • Be fully prepared for class with a clean uniform, belt, and water.
  • Attend class regularly and consistently for continuous improvement.
  • Demonstrate dedication to the school. Contribute your time by helping to grow lower ranking students and be an ambassador for the school.
  • Keep an open mind. Learning takes place in many forms there is always room to grow, regardless your belt level.
