About Jax BJJ

A Family-Owned & Family-Friendly Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy

At Jax BJJ, we see training as a way to improve your life.  Our curriculum integrates Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, Judo, mixed-martial arts, and self-defense.  Our Strong-Base youth program includes anti-bullying and character development. This program was developed by Professor Nelson Willis, who has 20 years of coaching and clinical experience.  We focus on learning and developing a fighting style that works for you.  Everyone's reasons for training are different.  Everyone's learning style is unique.  Our mission is to find an approach to help you accomplish your goals. 


While Jax BJJ (Jacksonville Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) was established in 2006, it's history began in the '90's.  Professor Larry Shealy started training students on mats in a rented storage unit they called the "Hot Box".  Jax BJJ members include hobbyist/lifestyle students, competitive athletes, law enforcement, and military.  We have had athletes win local, regional, and national medals.  We have also had athletes medal at Worlds and Pans.  Some of our students have continued their jiu-jitsu journeys all around the world, some have started their own academies, and some of us continue to train here.  We have seen generations of our families train on our mats and our community continues to grow.
