What We Offer
El Monte Jiujitsu

About

Everyone has different reasons why they want to start training.  At our school we realize the importance of addressing those reasons.  When you come in, we will spend time with you and discuss your goals.  Whether your goals involve learning to defend yourself, physical fitness, or competing at the highest level we will strive to help you meet or exceed them.

Many times, you will hear about self-defense, improving your confidence and the many fitness related benefits.  There is also something else.  From the first day you step onto the mats you will experience a deep feeling of community.  To improve you need your training partners and they need you.  Through that mutual learning process, you will bond with your teammates and realize that the sense of community you have gained will extend to all the jiu-jitsu practitioners you meet.

When you make the decision to step through our doors you will know that you are in a family business.  Our family has committed themselves to the success of this school.  We have learned that with family on your side there is nothing you cannot accomplish together.  We look forward to sharing that experience with you and welcoming you to our family.

This community has a rich history.  We hope to honor that history by being active in our community and representing its fighting spirit at competitions throughout our state and beyond.
