Beaufort MMA has been a mixed martial arts school since its inception as “McCullough Submission Fighting” in 1997. Although the style of Zanshindo (the curriculum that our school uses to give rank) is a mixed martial arts system, there is also a heavy emphasis on grappling. For this reason, we recommend and encourage every student to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals.
Our coaches and students train both Gi and No-Gi and compete with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as well. Beaufort MMA also hosts several BJJ seminars and tournaments throughout the year.
If you are interested primarily in jiu-jitsu (submission grappling) and do not prefer the striking (boxing or kickboxing) martial arts, you are welcome to try our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. The classes meet Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30pm and the instructors are belted under Gracie Barra’s style of BJJ. The class is intended for all levels of grapplers, but we strongly emphasize the basic foundations of the Gracie Barra style of BJJ.
Grappling in Class
I love watching high paced matches with plenty of scrambles and transitions. Training at a high pace is great for cardio and forces you to process and react quickly. If you have never tried a #brazilianjiujitsu class, I recommend finding a gym with a good environment and knowledgeable instructors. You won't ever be the same. 😉 #oss #bjj #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jits #mma #mixedmartialarts #grappling #flowroll #rolling #cardio #trainhard #neverthesame #martialarts
