The club meets every Tuesday night from 7:00pm to 8:30pm starting on September 17th. We are located on the second floor of the gym, just past the basketball courts in the mat room, room 225 at the end of the hallway.

Experience is not required to join! We will help you every step of the way. Our faculty advisor and black belt instructor Peter Greene owns and operates our affiliated academy, Monadnock Brazilian Jiujitsu (MBJJ), which is only a five minute drive from campus. Once you are a member of the club, you can go train there for free! The schedule can be found here at Most of our senior members attend classes there several times a week and are willing to carpool with anyone who is interested in going.
