Martial Arts Classes

Lancaster Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Ephrata promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger opponent by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks, choke holds, and submissions to defeat the opponent. The training you receive from LBJJ can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi / no-gi) and mixed martal arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (a.k.a. "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training.

At Lancaster Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), students learn at their own pace without feeling overwhelmed or left behind. All of our group classes are taught with the utmost concern for safety, and we demand that all students treat each other respectfully, regardless of skill level, gender, race, nationality or creed.
