A glimpse of our youth BJJ class in Tigard. Kids who have been doing Gracie Jiu Jitsu for a few years are unstoppable! BJJ is a great activity for kids and helps them develop confidence as they become more proficient at self defense. If you’re in the Lake Oswego or Tigard area we are just minutes away. Show your kids how to be awesome by enrolling them in Jiu Jitsu today!


Our Jiu Jitsu classes in Portland shape people with foundations. Here’s a small clip of one of our brown belt instructors demonstrating the standard hip escape. Coach Erik then combines the method with the invisible force of “yielding” which is how he gets out so fast from his partners mount. In combination with another basic movement, taking the back from guard, it becomes s vey powerful setup to quickly get the best position on the ground.

The best part of this clip is we caught a white belt and blue belt performing the movements as they worked it out in class. That’s how learning BJJ develops at our class at RCW in Tigard. It’s a step by step progression using forces like yielding and leverage so anyone big, tall, or small can learn real Gracie Jiu Jitsu.
