We are proud to Represent Minnesota’s most winning and #1 Jiu Jitsu Team! – Team Academy. Under the direction of Professor Greg Nelson our program is technically sound and safe for beginner though advanced students. You may have heard that if you can’t defend yourself on the ground, you can’t defend yourself, or that 90% of fights end up on the ground.  We believe in creating a complete system of self-defense & self improvement. Training in a slippery icey climate like MN, you must have a solid understanding of ground based defense. Even our country’s military uses this system to train our soldiers in hand to hand combat.

Let’s face it. If Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a “must-know” thing for profession mixed martial arts fighters like the guys fighting in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) these days, it should most definitely be a “must-know” for pretty much anyone.

That’s because the “fight-ending submissions” and “fight-controlling positions” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have been battle-tested in combat, in a cage, in a ring and on the street.
