Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a highly effective martial art for men, women, and children from all walks of life. It relies on leverage, timing, and proper technique to overcome larger and stronger opponents. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will give you confidence, knowledge, body-dexterity and fitness. We teach in a safe, friendly and controlled environment. We offer year-round tailored classes for Pee Wee (3-6), youths (6-14), adults (15+), and females. Submission Grappling is a form of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where the competitors do not wear a Gi (aka Kimono). Submission Grappling is a cross between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. We offer Submission Grappling classes on Monday as part of our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Programs. At T3MA you can train to the level of intensity you feel comfortable with.

Available classes:

PeeWee BJJ (ages 3-6)

Youth BJJ (ages 7-15)

Female Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


The T3MA Youth Martial Arts program is designed to help your child develop life-long skills and habits that lead to a healthier lifestyle, more self-discipline, respect for themselves and others, and confidence.

The T3MA program is not a watered down version of our adult program – we teach the same techniques, we have live training, and the classes are taught by our lead instructors to ensure you child is getting the highest level of training.


The T3MA Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kids Program has two age groups.  Our PeeWee group is for ages 3-6, and our Youth group is ages 7-14.  We offer separate and combined classes.  PeeWees can join the combined class once they graduate to ensure they are ready to participate with the older kids in a safe and productive environment. The combined classes provide an opportunity for the younger kids to learn from the older kids, the older kids to provide leadership, and a convenience for parents of children that span both age groups.  Our lead instructors and their assistants ensure the kids are getting the best instruction in a fun and safe environment.


We offer specialized training for kids who wish to compete in local and national tournaments. These classes were developed by our multi world champion instructors to help them leverage the same skills our instructors used to win multiple world titles in Gi and No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts.  Please contact us for more information about our competition team and how to register for tournaments and other events.
