With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you become master of the ground fight.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Japanese Mitsuyo Maeda transferred this martial art to the Gracie family in Brazil. This grew into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art suitable for men, women and children. At Combat & Fitness Academy we strengthen body and mind based on the enriching martial art BJJ in Alkmaar.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport in which respect is central.

Punching or kicking your opponent is not allowed. You do learn - with a combination of strangulations, arm locks and leg locks - how to force your opponent to surrender as quickly as possible. As a result, you can go full physical with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but you go home without damage.

In BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) you are never subservient to the other.

With the help of takeovers and blocking techniques you are able to easily take out a large and strong opponent. You will therefore learn basic self-defense techniques. The goal of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to gain (and maintain) control.

Combat & Fitness Academy teaches you the principles of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Although the roots of Combat & Fitness Academy lie at Olympiawaard Heerhugowaard led by BJJ Rob van Buel, at Combat & Fitness Academy you will be taught by Dennis Kollof, a certified martial arts teacher (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu discipline), Leroy Busselaar and Frank Strooker (Black belt competition). Kollof gained his knowledge in seminars by Harold Harder, Marcus Almeida, Xande Ribeiro and Rickson Gracie, among others. He also attended training camps in Denmark, Poland and Brazil. Kollof also took lessons from Rob van Buel at Olympiawaard.

At Combat & Fitness Academy we offer programs for all ages. BJJ costs € 40 per month as a subscription.
