Manassas BJJ

Vanguard Gym provides daily classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), also known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and Submission Grappling. BJJ is the devastatingly effective ground fighting style which incorporates the takedowns of Judo with the ground techniques that the Gracies brought to public attention in the UFC or Ultimate Fighting Championships TM.

Learn technical grappling which will allow you to defend yourself with arm-locks, leg-locks, and chokes. Participate in traditional gi and no-gi submission wrestling sessions available depending on your training focus or goals. Our proven and effective fighting techniques have been developed and passed directly down from, and through, Rickson Gracie , Jeorge Pereira, and Leo Dalla to our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu second degree Black Belt head coach, Doug Esposito, and our assistant coaches, who work side-by-side with students daily on new techniques and reaching their goals. You will not find a more accessible coach with more time spent providing adult learners in effective self-defense, combatives, and competition level jiu-jitsu instruction.

If you are interested in competition we support an active competition team and travel regularly to local, national, and even international level competitions to include the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation’s (IBJJF) Worlds and Pans, where many of our team members and coaches have competed and medaled.

If you have no interest in competition that is fine as well. Most of our members enjoy Manassas BJJ classes as a hobby and reap the benefits associated with training the “gentle art” such as fitness, self-defense, confidence, and enjoy the social aspect of training with such a tight team.
