The Gentle Art, as it is often described, is a non-striking martial art that utilizes grips and leverage to unbalance your opponent and ultimately achieve a submission, or "the tap". A typical class is divided into two parts: technique and drilling, followed up with live sparring. Both are invaluable to learn and retain proper technique, while developing sensitivity and timing through live sparring.
Tech Lab Jiu Jitsu is the product of many years of an open-minded, creative approach to Jiu Jitsu that blends strong fundamentals with new-school technique. The techniques taught here are competition tested and proven effective, a benefit of learning from active competitors.

Tech Lab Jiu Jitsu Instructors ensure the safety of our students at all times as we have black belt instructors and instructor assistants during all classes. Our mats are cleaned and sanitized after each class and we ask all students to show up with clean Gi's, trimmed nails, a water bottle and a good attitude. After class, or while your child trains, you can enjoy a coffee or beer at trailhead, go shopping for groceries or check out the local restaurants the Plaza has to offer. We hold ourselves to high standards to ensure our students are having fun, getting the proper discipline and the finest jiu jitsu techniques.
