Elite MMA offers Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes at convenient times at all four Houston-area locations. Jiu Jitsu, which means “gentle art,” emphasizes leverage, balance and technique, allowing a smaller individual to defend against a larger, stronger opponent. Based on a rich history, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is suitable for all ages, body types and skill levels.
Benefits of Jiu Jitsu include:
- Great exercise
- Fun way to burn fat
- Enhances flexibility
- Boost confidence
- Team-oriented environment
- Great form of self-defense
First class expectations:
- Wear comfortable exercise attire; you will receive your kimono (also called a gi) at this first meeting. This is included in your registration fee.
- Bring a water bottle, towel and snack if you would like these items.
- We will begin with a warmup, followed by technical training and application.

Jiu Jitsu & Houston BJJ Community
Elite Mixed Martial Arts has been the host to several BJJ world champions who have come to Houston to vacation in America and to share some of their many Brazilian Jiu Jitsu “secrets”. World/Mundial Champion Black Belts Ze Mario Accord “Esfiha” and Felipe Silva have taught extensively at our school in Houston. Early in 2006, Elite MMA hosted Brazilian Jiu Jitsu brown belt "Beto," then later that year Octavio Couto Jr "Ratinho" came to teach. At the beginning of 2007 Ratinho came back to stay for several months. When these accomplished athletes are not able to come to Houston, we at Elite travel to Brazil to train. Frost Murphy, a black belt instructor at our Baytown location, trained for 6 months in Rio de Janeiro. While in Rio, we train at the BRASA TEAM’s academies with Octavio Couto Jr. “Ratinho”, Felipe de Costa, Vinny Campelo, Muzio de Angeles, and others.
