You can check out the new schedule here
We’ve made some changes to the schedule and added new classes including weekly Judo! No Gi is moving to Tuesdays and ALL evening Fundamentals (Beginners & Advanced) are now 90 minutes. The new schedule will take effect 2/14/22.

Summer camps are back!

Grab a spot before camp is full! Camps are great for beginner or advanced kids. MN BJJ campers will learn or improve their BJJ and have FUN doing it. Campers will also train judo, wrestling, have daily agility workouts and play chess. We’ll even sneak in a Nerf battle or two. Camp fills up fast so sign up soon. MNBJJ members get reduced tuition $0 registration fees. Click the link below to register and we’ll add it to your inhouse account:


Mark your calendars: Kids Graduation is Saturday, March 19th, 2022

We’re so excited to celebrate all your child’s hard work! Even if your child is not changing belts this graduation, be sure to attend as they will be getting a stripe on their belt.


Kids belt testing begins February 19th for Grey/White belt and Grey belt only.
To be eligible for Grey/White belt testing, your child must have attended AT LEAST 40 classes.
To be eligible for the Grey belt test, your child *should* compete at least once at white belt level and must have at least 3 stripes on their grey/white belt. Here are links to the tests: 

If your child meets these requirements, email to schedule belt testing before March 10th.

We recommend reviewing the test with your child so they have plenty of time to work on any techniques they don’t feel confident about. If they’re still struggling to tie their belt (its a skill they need to pass the test!) here is an easy video showing how to do it :The Best Way to Tie Your BJJ or Judo Belt! 


There are LOTS of BJJ competitions coming up and this list is by no means complete. These are the upcoming competitions that either Marco, Christina or Rafael (or all 3) will be coaching at. If you have another competition in mind, just talk to Marco before signing up.
