Shreveport BJJ!: We are Archimedes Jiu-Jitsu, come join our team! We provide a safe, healthy, and clean environment to learn one of the most effective martial arts in the world. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling art that focuses on how to effectively and safely take opponents to the ground, pin them and submit them through joint locks, and chokes. Jiu-Jitsu is a great tool for self defense due to its emphasis on controlling your opponent.
In the summer between his Junior and Senior year our head Instructor, Christopher Velez walked into the halls of Prime BJJ where he met his Professor Carlos Santos who he would train under for 11 years. Professor Santos is one of only a few in the world that holds 3 adult world IBJJF championship titles. Carlos is the founder of First BJJ, HQ’d in Salt Lake City, UT and is one of the old school members of the original Carlson Gracie Team. He and Professor Suyan Queiroz have built First BJJ to where it is today.
But Archimedes is about more than just your physical development. Students will develop resilience by going through the difficulties of the art as we incorporate sparring in our practice. Socially, Jiu-Jitsu is also a great place to develop friendships and camaraderie by training together. All of these benefits lead to a more healthy and confident lifestyle.
What makes Archimedes Jiu-Jitsu unique is our well thought out and planned curriculum. Teaching Jiujitsu in it’s 3 facets: The sport (Gi and No-Gi competition) MMA application, as well as street (focused on practical self defense).
