Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu  is a martial art, combat sport, and a self -defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.

As a grappling-based martial art, the central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Taking an opponent to the ground, wrestling for dominant control, and rendering them harmless.

Client Testimonials – Krav Maga Roanoke

“This was an amazing class, with great instructors. I loved the intensity and the real-world simulations that gave me confidence that I could use my newly learned skills outside of the class, if necessary.”
“My son has been training at RVAMA for almost 2 years. Bryan’s Warrior Academy is the perfect mix of stand up, ground, fitness, and self-defense techniques. I visited several different martial arts studios before deciding and chose RVAMA because of the amount of interactive one on one attention each person receives in every class as well as the practicality of the skills being taught compared to the other places I visited. I highly recommend the Warrior Academy program.”
“This a highly recommended class for those looking to get in better shape and learn some self- defense at the same time. Instructors are top notch, the passion they have for KravMaga shows through with each and every class. They will push you to be better and feel better about yourself. Keep up the good work guys!”
“I attended the savage woman class and I wanted to send you my review. I loved the class and I appreciated the practical tips such as not wearing your hair in a ponytail, not opening the passenger side door, and being aware of your surroundings. I also appreciated the real life situations at the end of class, so that we could practice what we learned. I would highly recommend the class to other women.”
