BJJ Classes for All at Black Diamond Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Train. Learn. Transform.

Welcome to Reno’s Newest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Studio

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses primarily on the art of grappling. Grappling is a form of close-range fighting that involves getting an opponent to the ground, improving position, and isolating limbs to seize movement, incapacitate, or cause injury. Jiu Jitsu does not include the usage of strikes but could provide a positional advantage where strikes could be beneficial in a self-defense situation.
