Specialized Programs for the Entire Family
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone! At Redline Jiu-Jitsu, we offer specialized programs for the entire family: Redline kids programs (ages 4-12), Redline Basics and Fundamentals for beginner adults, and Redline Advance Program for advanced practitioners. For over 15 years, Redline’s primary focus has been to teach jiu-jitsu in a way that is welcoming, safe, and easy for new students, especially those with no previous experience. Today, our proprietary programs, safety-first teaching style, and our beginner-friendly introductory classes, allow anyone to experience the magic of jiu-jitsu without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed.
Private or Group Training
While Redline Jiu-Jitsu Academy is internationally renowned for the quality of its group classes, it’s been proven that private training provides students with greater comprehension in less time. In a one-on-one environment, the instructor can teach the lessons in the order that best suits the student, and can modify or adapt the techniques to accommodate the student’s strengths and weaknesses. Each private lesson begins with a review of all previously learned techniques, followed by the introduction of 2-3 new techniques. Once you fully understand the new techniques, the instructor will show you how to combine them in a series of Flow Drills. This process continues until you have mastered all the techniques in the curriculum.
Private classes offer maximum scheduling flexibility, day or night; if it works for you, we’ll make it happen. Moreover, if you can’t come to Redline just let us know where you live, and we’ll come to you!
14-Day Free Trial
Most BJJ schools limit new students to one free trial class. We offer new students a 14-day risk-free trial that includes unlimited access to all of our beginner group classes. We’re confident that the curriculum, the camaraderie, and quality of the instruction will exceed all your expectations. If that’s not the case, just let us know, and we will never charge you a penny.
