Established in 2008, Keene State College Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a non-discriminant student run organization focused on empowering our community through self defense and self confidence. Students of any age, gender, background, or athletic ability are invited to attend class at any time, no previous experience required.
Jiu Jitsu is a grappling sport, so no striking (punches, kicks, knees, elbows etc.) The focus is on position control and dominance, as well as choke holds and joint manipulation (making people tap out). No experience is required as most of the members are new to martial arts.
Interested students can also contact David Sweeney, the Coordinator of Intramural Sports/Club Sports at David.Sweeney@keene.edu for more information about the club.
