February and March 2017


The 2016 World Master takes place on August 25, 26 & 27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center Halls N1 & N1.1 located at 3150 Paradise Road in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event is a celebration of our sport and the chance for the masters to compete against some of the best of today and yesterday.
One such great is Caio Terra who has signed up for Master 1 along with tops Bruno Frazatto, Osvaldo Moizinho, Marcelo Mafra, Clark Gracie and too many others to name make this a super tough category to win.
It is amazing the increase in the number of athletes competing in this event giving us a taste of the depth and the scope of the penetration of Jiu-Jitsu in our society. It is certainly not a “young persons” sport any more

UPDATED Pre Schedule for the World Master

CJJA Women's Beginner Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Seminar

Join us at an introductory-level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu seminar taught by world champion brown belt, Ana Lowry. 


It is a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for self-defense as well as sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts competition. (Wikipedia)


Ana spent 5 years living in Sao Paolo, Brazil focusing on training in the mother land of Jiu-Jitsu and currently teaches at the world renouned Unity Jiu-Jitsu academy in New York City. On the 6th of August, she'll be here in Charlotte to teach introductory Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques to any and all ladies interested to learn!

Read more about Ana here:


Reasons for training Brazilian Jiu-JItsu vary depending on the person, but some of the more common reasons include: self defense, health and fitness, to gain self-confidence, to engage in a close-knit fitness community, and to pursue a healthy challenge.


Ladies of all ages, sizes, and martial arts abilities.


Only a $10 attendence fee! 


Registration is open for ages 4-17.  Kids World is the largest International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament for Kids in the world.  Our tournament will be held at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA, it is a Premier Professional Sports Venue.

Once in Seattle, both will have access to the care and services needed for a higher quality of life.
