Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Combining self-defense and fitness, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that is gaining increasing popularity in the United States. Students can expect to learn how to defend themselves, and to develop a toned and fit body over time when participating in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s an ideal activity for participants of all ages and levels of fitness. The Rock-Jitsu: Renzo Gracie Rockaway Beach, NY, program teaches a progress-oriented curriculum. Basic through advanced grappling techniques are taught in BJJ courses.

Martial Arts for Juniors

Many parents worry that signing their children up for martial arts classes is risky, but this could not be further from the truth! Programs such as the Juniors program at Rock-Jitsu are safe and fun, and emphasize focus and discipline—all while boosting confidence. Held in this professional studio in Rockaway Park, the MA for Juniors course teaches leverage-based control holds, meant to neutralize threats without using violence.

Learning martial arts is an excellent way for kids to be active and get exercise, but also teaches important life skills that are fundamental to life-long success. These classes are designed with a range of developmental stages and ages in mind. Kids learn real-world self-defense, like anti-bullying techniques, while strengthening the mind, body, and spirit, and of course having a blast!


For a full-body workout that beats doing reps at the gym, try a Kickboxing class at Rock-Jitsu. The comprehensive program offered combines flexibility, endurance, coordination, and speed to improve your Kickboxing skills, all while giving you a truly great all-around workout. Gain not only a better body, but awareness, confidence, and increased mental agility through the innovative program of drills and activities offered here.
